    If you really want a 19" then okay. I just found that if you go another inch you get higher resolution. One important point is whether your monitor comes with a DVI cable or analog cable, both or none! This was an important factor in my decision since the 225bw came with a DVI cable. Yes, you will still need to buy a DVI adapter at the Apple store.

    Thx, but im a tight budget, and i will also have to buy Bluetouth keyboard and Mice, so it will be a little expensive, and the 20" is 1/3 more of the price of the 19".

    If you are on a budget, skip the bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
    You won't pay 1/3 more for a monitor but you'll pay a 1/3 or more for that?
    A larger monitor is more important that a new keyboard and mouse if you've already got them.

    As far as i know you need a bluetooth keyboard and mouse to close the macbook to only use the external moniter?
