    Default Advice on which monitor to use with 2nd screen for laptop

    My son would like a monitor to use with a laptop to be able to look at the bigger screen, I have let him have my old AOC 23" 2013 model.
    Would he better of with some thing a bit current ie https://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/...RoCBZkQAvD_BwE
    Or would the existing AOC one be as good, I suppose things have gotten better since 2013 as I don't no the difference in things like 60Hz etc.
    It sole use is for a small business so no gaming.

    23" is fine. 23-24 difference is hardly worth it.
    And a gaming monitor? Nah...he's not gaming.

    For business use the biggest difference is size and resolution, age and refresh rate is generally unimportant.
    So any monitor is fine, but for me personally the bigger the better. My work monitors (2 of them) are 27" and it's very useful to me working with large spreadsheets and the like.
