In my day, it was easy: you had a TV or you didn't have a TV.
What are kids bringing to college for in-room entertainment these days? Some notes about DD:
1) She will be studying interactive media/game design/something like that, so she will have a laptop.
2) She also has an Xbox One that she won last year at afterprom.
3) She doesn't watch a lot of broadcast TV. What she does want to watch will be available on-demand through our cable provider's online presence, and she may end up with an Amazon Plus subscription or something.
4) The Xbox can play Blu-Rays and stream the digital copies of movies we own.
The direct question is, would a 24" or so computer monitor serve her well? It would be more useful to attach to her laptop for school projects, and would be cheaper than a similar-size TV. How big a monitor would be good?
Thanks in advance.
