There seems to be a silly premium attached to a "TV" LCD display versus a
"Computer" LCD display, but you can turn any PC LCD display into a TV by
adding a device such as the NextVision series by ViewSonic.  The end result
is often significantly cheaper then an LCD "TV" of equal size.  There aren't
a lot of 16:9 LCD computer displays at this point, but without burn-in to
worry about, does it matter?
