    Hi there.
    A mate of mine wants to replace both his crt monitor and his tv which are both in the bedroom. Basically he wants an all in one solution both tv and pc..

    Which lcd tv's do a high enuff res to use the pc on too?
    Also he wants freeview built in too if poss. Ideally keeping it under 500 quid if poss.

    Any ideas?

    Albaba :)

    How big a TV does he want?

    For that kind of budget you arent going to get a decent HDTV ( you might find a chinese budget option)

    Remember with LCD TV's even with HDTV's, the highest res of the panel is usually 1366*768 (or 1280* 768 i believe on some) which isnt that high a res compared to LCD monitors, so you may try and persuade him to get a monitor he likes and a tv card for his pc?

    Hmm tv card might be a good idea aye. 1280x720 res would be fine though...
