Sure, you could watch videos and play games on your 13-in. laptop screen but do you really want to? Give yourself and your fellow students an eyeful with Alienware's roomy, widescreen 21.5-in. (55 cm) gaming monitor. The OptX AW2210 delivers a full 1080p picture and up to 16.7 million colors (Transformers, here we come), not to mention a 2-millisecond response time, which is perfect for gamers with hair-trigger reflexes. The monitor also comes with plenty of digital-video connections, including a DVI port for your laptop, twin HDMI inputs for a DVD player, Blu-ray player and/or gaming console, plus four USB ports for a keyboard, mouse and other PC peripherals. All that's missing is the popcorn.
