Why 'o why must good things always get introduced into the market late. This would have been an excellent purchase 12-18 months ago. But now, the 1080p era is here. A 1080p lcd display plus a Viiv-enabled computer is the future today. A killer combo would be the Samsung LN-S4096D and a Dell Dimension (I guess you could substitute an HP for a Dell, but who's complaining ... a Viiv is a Viiv).
