Is using an external monitor for my laptop a bad idea?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I'm currently using a laptop with:

i7-8550U

16GB RAM

HDMI 1.4

USB C

 

https://www.amazon.com/BenQ-2560x1440-PD2700Q-Animation-Flicker-Free/dp/B01K1INYWG?th=1

 

I was thinking of getting this monitor for my external monitor.

 

Would it lag a lot? Or would it be fine? I heard that HDMI 1.4 supports 1440p, so that's not my concern.

 

Or is there any recommendations of a good monitor under $600~$700?

 

I'll be using it for mostly coding and surfing the web + watching movies.

 

The reason I picked BenQ is because I just love the colors on it.

I would recommend the Acer KG251QD. It is a 1080p 240 Hz monitor for under 400 AUD.

He's going to need a different display out to use 240hz though.

I'm not sure if having a higher refresh rate is really needed cause I won't be gaming on it anyways.
