I recently purchased a 17" high definition TV/ PC monitor. It's primary purpose is a TV for our bedroom. About the only thing Esther and I watch is the nightly news; and with such a monster of a bedroom, this will give us a little more reason to spend time up there. I purchased a high definition tuner on eBay, but I haven't received it yet. It is a widescreen and works great with DVD. It also doubles as a computer monitor. It has breathed new life into my four year old iBook. 17" beats 12" though the lazyboy is a lot more comfortable than the desk.
