BWL--Slag mispoke. It's not an "LED" (a type of bulb) it's an "LCD"- liquid crystal display. It isn't a tube, and they're cheap enough these days that you can get one of them as easily as the CRT and they weigh a lot less. You'll find a variety of software programs to use to play movies on the computer--I use one a few years old that you can usually buy for about $5 on eBay (it's OEM) called WinDVD.

You can also get a card for the computer with a television and radio tuner and set up for cable so you can acutally watch television on your computer.
