What is the best tv compatible with a macbook pro?

My boss just bought me a macbook pro for work, and told me to look into getting a bigger monitor or maybe a TV. I'm not that savy on electronics and this will be my first mac. Any recommendations would be great.

Any TV with an HDMI, Composite, DVI, VGA or S-Video or Component input will work.
