A 40-Inch 1080p HDTV Is Your Under-$300 Deal of the Day

When somebody admits to you that they don't own a TV, they're usually being an elitist, condescending jerk. Here's how you defuse the vocal no-TV crowd: play naive and simply assume they haven't checked TV prices in a while and they think flat screens are still thousands and thousands of dollars. Then helpfully point them to this 40-inch large, full 1080p HDTV from Amazon that costs only $270 with free shipping. Tell 'em that even if they don't want to watch broadcast television, this Sceptre set features three HDMI ports for computers, streaming set-top boxes, and game consoles. Plus, if your TV-less friend says something silly like "I just want to watch [INSERT HOME NFL TEAM HERE]" you can tell him all he has to do is plug in an antenna. And when he still refuses to see your pro-big-screen point, buy this TV for yourself and laugh when he's still watching Netflix on his laptop. [Amazon]
