Here's one for all of you electronics buffs.
EBay has some REALLY great deals on older laptop computers, some of which have 8.5 inch and larger TFT screens. Would it be possible to connect one of these to a scan converter to allow switchable NTSC/VGA signal input?

Point well taken. I've also realized that many of the screens are STN = passive matrix and display either 256 or 4096 colours: yuck! In some cases, TFT LCD modules and screens are available in 10.4" and larger sizes, but it's pretty frightening how little the vendors know about their wares when queried. Caveat emptor!

The off axis viewing angle on many laptop LCDs are not great. Viewing directly on is not a problem, anything off to the side, top bottom or left is something different.
