The Advanced Monitor has a resolution of 7 characters horizontally by 5 characters vertically, but can be enhanced with .setTextScale() to 15 characters horizontally by 10 characters vertically.

Monitors can be drawn to using the Term API and Monitor API. The Monitor API has the same functions as the Term API, plus two additional functions: monitor.getTextScale and monitor.setTextScale.

Advanced Monitors also have touch input available to them through the monitor_touch event - players can right-click a monitor to cause a monitor_touch event on the computers connected to it.
