I just joined a company as a junior data scientist. There's around ten data scientists and the company recently supplied us with very high-end PC's. My issue is that they haven't upgraded the monitors. The monitors are very average and slightly outdated, the small resolution strains your eyes and I feel a newer, bigger and higher resolution monitor would be beneficial.
I thought of asking the relevant equipment supervisor to upgrade the monitors for my whole team, thus all ten people, which would be an ideal scenario. However what if they refuse? I could purchase the monitor myself but I would not feel comfortable having a better setup than people around me.
Is it appropriate for me to ask this considering I just joined, and should I ask myself for the whole team? Any advice?
EDIT: Just to give you the perspective; the computer costs $5000 while the monitor costs $100.
