Companion for my toy

I have to find a companion for my toy.    I have dual monitor in the office so not quite comfortable with the little display of MacBook.

I considered Samsung, Philips and eventually picked ViewSonic.    I didn't like Samsung that much until I visited their factory in Korea last year.    Now Samsung is a premium brand like SONY and you really have to pay a premium.    Philips is OK but the look is a bit dull.    ViewSonic is somewhat in between so that was my choice.   Anyway the shop said all monitor of this price range is made in China so I don't think I can really tell the difference especially I'm not a gamer and I don't watch DVD with it.    For $215 I can't be too demanding.

The ViewSonic comes with a built-in speaker but it sounds crap so I guess next companion for my toy would be a reasonably priced USB speaker.
