Gateway is now selling its 42" progressive scan plasma TV for $3000, which almost makes it a sensible purchase. The manufacturing technology is advancing very quickly- prices seem to drop every three months. I predict that when I purchase my next television in a couple of years, it will be flat panel display (52" or greater), HDTV ready, and cost less that $2000. Moon pies- what a time to be alive.
