Second monitor for late 2013 MBP

MacBook Pro - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hi

I have a late 2013 MBP, still works as great today as the day I bought it despite being used every day for 4 and half years. The specs are

Processor 2.4GHz i5

Memory 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Graphics Intel Iris 1536 MB

I'm finding that I'm struggling with the work I am doing on it now and will benefit from an additional screen, but I have no idea what I'm looking for.

21 - 24" should suffice, I have read that my MBP can support 4k monitors but not sure what make to go for, what screen resolution I should be after or what connection to look for. Amazon has hundreds with almost 5* reviews starting at £70 going upwards of £300. They all say 4k, high contrast etc.

I am a software developer so will mostly have it in code view or running email in one screen with the other split between code and output views.

Is anyone willing to lend a hand to someone who tech specs left behind 10 years ago?

Thanks
