    Wow. Just. Wow.

    I just saw the movie "300"'s trailer in 1080i. On my computer. I have a 24" LCD, so it is the full 1080i. Makes me want to get a Blu-Ray player for my computer. Like. Now.

    I'm pretty happy with 720p, but my screen only does 1680x1050

    IMO the bitrate has a lot to do with it too.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    This was off of the interweb, so I assume that a Blu-Ray disk would have a higher bitrate.

    And that's the nice thing about a 24". 1920x1200 all to yourself.

    I have both Bluray and HD-DVD players and a 720p TV (37") ... the HD player came with 300 on HD-DVD and it was absolutely jaw-dropping.

    When the Vizio 47" 1080p TV falls under a grand at Costco, I'm buying it
