    Question Size vs resolution

    Hi everybody, I am about to buy a new monitor for my computer, but I am not sure if I should buy a 32 inch HDTV with a resolution of 1360x768, or a 23 inch HD monitor with a resoulution of 1920x1200. I want to use it primarily for digital painting. The problem is that I am not sure if I should go for size or for resolution.

    Thanks everybody

    There have been a couple of threads in the past here about people trying to use HDTVs as computer displays, and the consensus seems to be that the results are disappointing. I'd stick with a dedicated monitor.
