I am thinking of buying a new MacBook Pro to replace my 5-year-old\niMac. Basically, I want the MBP so that I can use it for travel but\nalso as my home computer where I would connect either a 24- or 27-inch\ncomputer monitor or a 42-inch HD TV. I do not have a TV and have not\nhad cable TV in about 18 years and I don't think I will anytime in the\nnear future. However, we do use my current 24-inch iMac to watch\nNetflix movies and TV shows and would do so with anything I buy in the\nnear future.\n\nSince HD is limited to 1920 x 1080, is it a mistake for me to buy the\nHD TV as my lone external monitor rather than a 24-inch or 27-inch\ncomputer monitor? Even my 24-inch is 1920 x 1200.\n\nThanks a bunch for your suggestions and comments.
