    is usually quite possible...sure, a 42" monitor might seem a bit much, but if your eyes are older, it can make the difference between a computer being usable and not.  For my nearly 80 year old inlaws, it means they can Skype and email and stay in contact with family.

    •  Almost any modern TV can be used as a monitor. (5+ / 0-)

      Any flat-panel display, unless it was built years ago, will have at least an HDMI input. You can buy converter boxes for most PC inputs that will output HDMI with little difficulty. For most newer laptops, the most you will need is a (much smaller and less expensive) adapter.

      And it looks like a lot of Element's TVs have PC inputs anyway, so you probably wouldn't need even that.

      With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied - chains us all, irrevocably.
