I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop at the moment and thinking about buying a monitor 1920x1080

I was going to upgrade my screen to 1920x1080 from dell but they was going to charge £270 and thats just for a refurbished screen so i was thinking it was best to upgrade to a monitor ?

Reason for buying one as i use the internet and photoshop CS and have a large collection of 1920x1080 photographs and not forgetting windows 7 use.I am looking at 3 models which a below , i would be greatful of advice

Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24" Widescreen LED Monitor
Hanns G 27.5 inch Monitor HZ281
Dell UltraSharp U2312HM 23" Widescreen LED Monitor

Odd suggestion mikex.. he mentioned he's using it for Photoshop and browsing the internet and you suggest a monitor that's good for gaming? Not to mention it's not among the 3 he's looking at..

If you want the colors to be accurate for photoshop you most likely want a IPS-panel, the Hanns G has a TN-panel so that might be a reason to scratch that one off.
The two Dells both use an IPS panel, the U2412M has a 1920x1200 resolution while the U2312HM has a 1920x1080 resolution. You mentioned the photo's are 1920x1080 so it might seem logical to go for a monitor with the same resolution.. but don't forget that you pretty much always have a taskbar on your screen taking up space. Not to mention titlebars and menubars.

Personally I'd go for the U2412M.
