Default Need help buying monitor

Hey fellas I need some help buying a HDTV monitor for my XBOX 360 which will also work with my PC. I went to Best Buy and this dude was trying to sell me Sony Bravia 26" LCD HDTV for $1,999 Canadian with a 4-year warranty included. It had really sharp picture but it was too expensive. Oh it was also very heavy. I like my Acer 19" PC monitor:

It is inexpensive, really light, and has great quality. The drawback I can't use it for my 360. You see the thing is I work as a security guard and I am all alone from 7pm to 7am so I want something that is portable so I can easily hide it if my boss comes :amazed:

yyour boss wont be in after 7:00, or still he will be? HDTV is just resolution, any monitor can run HD video. as HD is mainly processor dependent (not even VGA ccard)
