Default LCD TV or Monitor...

which is better for basic computer usage? little of gaming, movies and school related stuff (matlab, C++ and etc).

Is there really any difference between using a LCD TV as a computer monitor? 24inchish

In general, the LCD TV has a lower resolution than a LCD monitor and the details are a little less sharp as in word processing and such.

Do not use a TV as a computer monitor. In general, the sharpness is horrible, and there is going to be very significant screen door effect (black lines between every pixel). TVs are meant for distant viewing, while monitors are meant for close viewing.
