what specs do you require on a monitor?

I wouldn't mind spending a bit more money on a good monitor

I've been able to connect a laptop with a 1680x1050 screen to an external 1080p screen through the VGA port. It's an older (c2d) model. I had to get an updated driver for this to work.NewsyL wrote: ↑ Also, if your laptop screen supports only 1366x768 native resolution, don't expect that you'll be able to use the laptop screen and the 1920x1080 external screen as one expanded desktop where you can seamlessly drag a window from the external to the laptop and, in particular, get the appearance of the external monitor (colour & gamma) to match the laptop screen. Chances are you will not be able to.

Yes, that is the easy part. The hard part can be getting the colour of the external to match the laptop screen when you are attempting to use both screens at the same time as in when you "Extend" the Windows desktop across both displays and getting the external monitor to display at its' native resolution if the native resolution of the laptop screen is lower.
