My main computer is a laptop and I would like to buy an external, bigger monitor for it. I already tried one, but it only had a normal VGA connection. Unfortunately the screen flickered a lot, and I suspect that this was because my notebook's VGA port does not deliver enough power.
That is the reason why I want to buy a monitor which I can use with my HDMI port. Is this properly supported with Ubuntu? Can I buy any screen I like that has an HDMI plug? Or do you have to avoid certain products?
