That is better but still not very crisp. What kind of TV would I have to buy in order to get similar quality to a computer monitor? Is there a particular feature I'm looking for? Is it the low TV refresh rate of 60hz? I would want resolution at least 1280x1024 minimum.
I agree. Keep in mind that most 22 inch monitors are 1680x. My 15 inch laptop is around the resolution of your tv. In other words a tv has a pretty low resolution for such a large size and is not designed to be viewed up close as a monitor. 30 inch monitors are typically 2560x1600 and cost considerably more than a large tv.
If she wants to use it she needs to move back from it and view it from a distance that a typical tv would be viewed from so she isn't looking at the individual pixels.
