For my purposes, 15-17" is fine. The idea popped into my head when I saw a
touchscreen for auction on our site (www.dovebid.com is my employer) -
unfortunately I bid a little too little, it ended up going for $82 I think.
What I want is something to put on the wall in my foyer or hallway that
anyone could use to get basic info like weather/stocks/headlines, control
the house if/when I get that going, etc. I don't need to add touch
capability to my TV :)

I will go the YouTube route, thanks for your advice.
