    I'm personally after a 19-22 inch monitor that will allow for a macbook + a laptop to be plugged in (at the same time) and then just switch between inputs to have dual screen for either...

    Hrmmm would be nice :)

    Then all I'll need is the macbook haha

    samsung syncmasters are usually quite nice monitors. not sure of price though. look on ebuyer.com really good prices there.

    @renniks - sounds good but you may need a kvm switcher for that. dont think there too pricey though

    or maybe a vga/dvi switcher. one of the 2 anyway

    the more expensive samsung models, dell 2408W, lacie are all good DESIGN monitors as they use better panels but they're not cheap.

    I would say look at the dell 24" display S2409W as an option,its on offer at £180 (overclockers.co.uk) plus it has analogue, dvi and hdmi connections.
    Samsung are a good alternative too in my opinion and I currently use 2 of them myself.

    If you're prepared to pay an extra 30 quid (I would) you can get an led based Dell G2410 24" from overclockers.co.uk (Its £290 on dell site)

    ok I've partially changed my mind, I've been looking into it again and the samsung f2380 is probably the best option for a designer on a budget. It is a little over budget and its only 23" (16:9 ratio) but it does have 100% srgb colour range and a cpva panel (good angles etc). In my opinion this is a brilliant buy for £243 (@ overclockers.co.uk) as apart from lacie (and apple) I can't think of any others that currently do 100% srgb especially under £300.

    Note - I'm not looking at a display for games, I'm looking at it as a design tool.

    edit: looks like its cheaper at amazon (£226) but out of stock :(
