    This information was taken directly from the Samsung website. Does the last sentence ("...HDTV ready...") mean that this monitor can be used as a TV? Also, can I connect a 12" 1.2Ghz iBook to this monitor? Thank you for your help.

    HDTV ready means there isn't a built in tuner. But it's capable of accepting the digial signal from an outside source. Like a cable box, or your computer.
