Smart TV means able to browse the internet directly on the TV (internet connection required), and able to install & run applications (limited in numbers).

Easier to use iPad to do a quick internet check than to do so using Smart TV.

But NICE to watch youtube on TV, especially HD Music Videos & Movie Trailers.

Tankee, thanks for the info.

Seems not a "die die must" or "good to" get gadget.

I notice the newer TV models can be connected to a PC via USB cable. Does it mean we can view a Microsoft office program like Word/Powerpt/Excel on the TV screen too?

The feature is not new, has been around for quite a few years.

Basically, using the TV as a monitor

The more recent feature is to stream your PC display and sound to your TV, another word, PC is not directly connected to the TV but via a home network. This also been around for a few years but more common now
