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.
