mac mini

Recently I posted a question re buying a new 21.5 Imac. I have decided to wait until June to see whether Apple refreshes them. Anyway, seeing the post re the mac mini I am now questioning whether I should purchase the 3.6 Quad core with 512g ssd, keyboard and mouse and of course a monitor. There are several monitors compatible with the mini and I was wondering whether someone could recommend a model, preferable around 23".
Also, which Ethernet should I get? We have Telus optic TV, netflex and 2nd gen Apple tv. We don't play games.
There seems to be only two usb 3 ports, I suppose I can add third party ports if needed.
Anyway another option to consider should Apple increases the prices on the Imacs.

Thanks
Sonny

I can’t help with your Internet connection I’m in the US, but there’s no special monitor for a mini. Anything will work you just have to get the right adapter. It has 1 built-in HDMI. There are four thunderbolt ports that you can attach USB hubs, or monitor adapters to. Any monitor will work with the right adapter. If it doesn’t have HDMI you can get an adapter for VGA or DVI. If the monitor does not have HDMI you can also get an HDMI to VGA or DVI adapter. Those are really nice machines BTW.

Thanks for your input.
I found a Levono monitor that has a built in webcam, mic and speakers which we'll require for facetime. I suppose the HDMI will be what I need to also power the mic, speakers and camera should I go this route.

Once again thanks,
Sonny
