    Sounds like a Cool url.

    Don't forget a LCD PC screen is probably less. Plus, if you run a lot of drives, external etc, and external devices, and have a 30 Inch Monitor, the overall cost may be less than a TV card/tuner, especially if you want to work and watch TV news at the same time. I think its a matter of swings and round abouts, especially if you have a web enabled TV, i.e. with a Media Center at the heart, might just be a cost saver.

    Yes, what size a type TV... if you are talking about a CRT television (one with a picture tube) then probably that will take more power than a computer...If you are talking about a new LCD TV then a computer might take more.
