LCD TV/Monitor combo
I have a small apartment, and my living room doubles as my office.
Don't get the Aquos, it's not HDTV. Get an HDTV 23" widescreen. Toshiba, Samsung, Zenith, ...
what about the gateway stuff? it seems a lot cheaper than everything else.
Gateway's plasma tvs are EDTV (480p). HDTV starts at 720i.
I just got one of the new 20" Dell flat screen monitors at work and I love it. In addition to being a great monitor it has both svideo and component inputs and can do Picture-In-Picture.
Hate to burst your bubble, but Dell doesn't really make flatscreens (or monitors of any type), they just rebrand them.
Hate to burst your bubble but I don't really care. It says Dell on it and thats all that matters to me.
I second the motion for the Dell flat panels. I have the FP2000, 20", 1600x1200 native resolution, has DVI, SVGA, SVideo, and composite inputs, as well as picture in picture. I think they are going for less than a kilobuck right now, even less when Dell is running one of their usual deals. DVD movies look great on this.

Dell uses (or has used in the past, since I don't have the ones you are specifically discussing) Samsung OEM LCD panels.
There is a reason the Gateway stuff is a lot cheaper.

I'm also very pleased with the Dell 20" LCD panel. Its an awesome display and really seems to kill the competition in terms of price/performance.

I've just bought a 23" wide screen LG LCD (LG is really Lucky Goldstar but they tend not to use that now). As a TV its fine, as a display tool for presentations its fine I wouldn't use it as a desktop though I think my retinas would burn out.
Giant LCD, ATI All-In-Wonder?
