I wonder if I can get some tarp funds to buy this thing?

For that amount of money i would want a tv tuner inside. This is aimed mainly for the corporate world and nothing else.

I don't know why you are concerned that this set doesn't have tuners. Every cable TV customer in North America who bought a new TV in the last 5 years has a digital cable tuner they can't possibly use. Everybody on cable should be buying monitors instead of TV sets with digital tuners they can't use.
