I hear ya i upgraded recently to a 32 inch led backlit 1080p HDTV. I loved my old sanyo 32 inch TV, but i had to upgrade, i was getting tired of my screen getting cut off esp watching sports. So it was time for an upgrade to HD That and i was getting HD cable boxes as a free upgrade and it would have been pointless to have HD cable boxes and have a non HDTV to not be able to take advantage of it. So between those two reasons I finally caved in and bought me an HDTV. Sad part is you can't even give your old CRT TV's away now because no one wants them. I first tried selling mine and when that didn't fly i tried giving it away and no one wanted it lol.
No, the Cell processor wasn't good for HPC, either. Ask anyone that tried programming for it in that space. Or, just look to the Jaguar Petaflop supercomputer fiasco--they quietly swapped out the Cell processors with something more conventional very quickly and very quietly (they broke the Petaflop barrier, but really in name only to satisfy lawmakers concerned with the US falling behind in the supercomputing race... what a nice piece of pork for the vendors involved!). Jaguar ultimately only had a few programs that effectively utilized it during its Cell incarnation.
