Dont be fooled by the hype.  With a 32-37" display the only time you would
notice 1080p you would need to be sitting <3ft from the display.  Now you
say you will some times drop back to a desktop and use it as a monitor.  If
its on a desk and you pull a chair next to it 1080p might be worth it. But
for normal TV viewing you will never notice 1080p on a 37" TV.
