I've recently decided to get a mini Mac, and need to get a monitor to go with it. I am not computer illiterate, but the variety of available monitors is daunting. I'd like to get a 17" LCD flat-screen monitor with speakers from an established and respected manufacturer with a good warranty and dead pixel policy, ideally under $300. However, I am willing to go up to $350 if that would get me a monitor of demonstrably greater quality than is available for less than $300. I would greatly appreciate any advice on which monitors in my price range fit most closely with what I want, and which online stores have the best prices and service (from my research newegg.com appears to be pretty good).
