It's hard to find a thin bezel 24" with the width of 1200 resolution without going over $200.
Whatever you do, the display you buy must have at least 1024 pixels vertical in landscape mode.
Websites are designed for 1024x768 (yes, they still are), so they scale to a size usable on 1024 pixels wide displays. If your monitor has less than 1024 vertical pixels, it's gonna be unusable in portrait mode.
Keep that in mind.
For example: 1920x1080 and 1680x1050 are both VERY near the limit of being usable in portrait. 1280x1024 is AT the limit of being usable. A 1440x900 display would not be usable in portrait while browsing.
