Hi OB gurus,
I'm humbly looking for your help to choose a new monitor to use with my MacBook Pro (13" 2017 model) in my home office. I'll mainly be using the monitor to work on 2 or 3 documents at a time.
In short, I'm hoping for:
- Around 27" screen size
- Height adjustable
- If possible, USB-C (so I can charge my MacBook while plugged in)
- Aesthetically, not too bulky
My ideal budget is circa $500 on the basis that I'll be starting at this thing for about 10 hours a day.
The two models that have jumped out at me recently from this forum are:
- Dell UltraSharp 27 USB-C Hub Monitor U2721DE, $549 (Dell Outlet, Refurbished); or
- Xiaomi Ultrawide 34" Curved Monitor, $499 in upcoming sale.
The main trade-off between the two, for my purposes, seems to be extra screen (Xiaomi) vs USB C connectivity (Dell).
Could anyone make a recommendation between the two monitors, or recommend something else that might suit? Wary that I might be overspending if I'm not using the monitor for gaming.
Big thank you in advance,
