This is the broadest category, since almost everyone uses email, a Web browser or a word-processing application. Luckily for you and your wallet, these tasks don't require an expensive or cutting-edge monitor. Because these programs need less complex display technology, you'll be fine with a low-cost LCD. Make sure that the LCD you choose offers a sharp, bright image, displays crisp text and doesn't strain your eyes.

You should also consider a 17-inch screen. While 17-inchers are more expensive, but many users now prefer displays larger than the once-standard 15-inch monitor.
