When you have 31.5 inches of space, that's really the only monitor you need at that point. Once you buy this, you're going to have so much room for activities! It has a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1440 and a 75Hz refresh rate. While that refresh rate isn't the biggest, it's higher than default and helps you to get a lot more out of your games and media.

The beautiful IPS panel has a 5 ms response time, which is pretty solid for IPS. It also has 178-degree viewing angles and superb color accuracy. The built-in AMD FreeSync tech lets you use your graphics card to reduce screen tearing. Your monitor will match the frame rate of the card for a super smooth experience even during high-impact gaming and things like that.

Connectivity options include HDMI, VGA, DVI-D, and DisplayPort. That's a great mix of old and new so you can work with all your devices.

AOC is very generous with its warranties. This monitor is covered for up to three years.

Need something to connect to this monitor? You could go a couple different routes. Grab one of Lenovo's refurbished Chromebooks. These are inexpensive but also don't have very advanced insides. Or grab one of Apple's MacBook Pros on sale. You'll spend more but you get more, too. Either way, connect the laptop to your new AOC monitor to more than double the screen size.
