A programmer's job requires staring at a computer screen all day, so you might as well have the right monitor. Here are the top 10 picks.

The 1920x1200 monitor is one of the most beloved monitors for programmers, mainly because of its versatility in physical adjustments. The stand allows you to raise, lower, tilt, swivel, and pivot your monitor--not to mention easily shift it from portrait to landscape mode, and back. The thin bezel is also great for coders who like to have multiple monitors, as the bezel won't visually disrupt functionality between monitors. Get one here.
