Hi , im looking for some advice , I currently have this gaming laptop https/www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/medion-p6681-core-i7-7500u-8gb-1tb-geforce-gtx-1050-15.6-inch-windows-10-ga-30022545/version.asp and im looking at buying a monitor so I can game on a larger screen . I have recently found this monitor click here and wondering if I will just be able to plug in it via hdmi and get going , I plug my laptop into my tv to watch things but I have never tried an actual pc monitor and I have herd that I could have an issue sometimes with monitors of 144hz . Total novice at this type of thing so any help would be very much appreciated thanks

Sadly, not with that monitor because it doesn't have an HDMI port - only VGA and dual-link DVI-D.

I can't find the HDMI specification for your laptop, but the worst-case scenario is that it will only manage a 120Hz refresh rate (which hopefully you'll find plenty fast enough).
