Heres another affordable external monitor for your desktop or laptop. The Dell S2240Ms glossy 21.5-inch display has a native resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, and its stand tilts up to four degrees forward and 21 degrees backward, which should make it a bit easier to find a decent viewing angle.

Microsoft Wedge touch mouse

Microsofts tiny, avant-garde Wedge touch mouse was designed with Windows 8 tablets in mind, but that doesnt mean it isnt a great complement for an Ultrabook or a laptop. This Bluetooth wireless mouse features four-way touch scrolling, Microsofts BlueTrack technology that boasts accurate tracking across a variety of surfaces, and is powered by a single AA battery. The mouse will work on PCs (running Windows 7 or 8) and Macs, though the four-way scrolling feature will serve you best on a Windows 8 machine.

Price: $69.95, Microsoft
