comment Does the size of the monitor Matter?
It can't hurt to check but think this is pretty much a non-issue any more. My 3 year old little $300 netbook can drive an external display at 1920x1080. I'll go out on a limb and say any graphics system with specs of 128MB RAM will do 1080p.

comment Does the size of the monitor Matter?
@admintech: As afrazier said you certainly can't say better graphics card is required merely to "enjoy" the larger monitor. The less expensive graphics card should yield an image that looks just as good. What you gain with more expensive card is mostly speed at processing 3d graphics, which is relevant for gamers but not many other users. I use hdmi from my $500 notebook computer with relatively low-powered graphics to enjoy my 1080p TV just fine.

comment How to eliminate overscan on Ubuntu HTPC
Norman -- Sorry to be of no help. It seems "Full Pixel" choice in Display Settings is not available for all resolutions or all inputs, but at least one source says it does show up on one Sony TV for 1080p using HDMI: hometheatermag.com/lcds/907sonybrav/index4.html

comment How to underline a word in Vim?
The :match command given is limited to underlining specific words that you define in the match command. A more general purpose method might be to match words that are written between underscores. For example, any word or phrase written between two underscores would be underlined by the command: ":match /_.*_/" Again, you would have to put the command in .vimrc (or somewhere else) to have it always work in all your files. Also, the particular example given using underscores may not be perfect, but it illustrates the idea.

comment How can I use my laptop's monitor as my PC's ONLY monitor?
@rob -- Thanks, yes, I just realized Synergy is not at all what he's looking for (and changed my other post). Using ssh client looks like interesting solution, I may try that myself.

Synergy (which I mentioned in my separate post) is open source software that works very much like MaxiVista. It's also cross platform so even better in that respect.
