The monitor is the computer screen that you use to control and see what is going on inside the computer. It displays output from the computer it's connected to.

Types of MonitorsEdit

There are two main, consumer monitor types. They are LCD (also called flat panel) and CRT. LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display, and CRT stands for Cathode Ray Tube. LCD screens are usually installed on laptops, while CRT monitors usually come with desktop computers.
