Flat panel is the ultra thin (LCD, Plasma) while flat screen is a CRT with an nonbeveled glass front.

And you want this for your bedroom? Flat Panel TV's are still extremely expensive ATM... you are looking at starting prices around $1000 or so.

You won't get one for cheap, you are looking at ?200 at least and that is definately not worth the money considering most LCD TVs have awful picture quality.

then the one I posted should fall into that range. It's usually around $1100 US.

I was thinking about purchasing the 17" LCD HDTV for use in my bedroom as a TV and computer monitor. I checked it out at my local DELL store, and it looked really nice.

I have decided not to get it, because I will be getting married in a couple months and moving into a home - then I will put my PC in a room by itself, so there would not be much of a point to having an HDTV in there. I am now thinking about getting the DELL 2005FPW, which goes for about the same price.

have you thought about a normal pc monitor and a cheap pc + tv card?

then you could use it as a proper media center

I agree. If you're going to get a flat panel TV you'd better be ready to shell out the dough in the first place. The low end ones aren't even worth getting most of the time and honestly, I woulnd't consider anything under 20".
