Dyno, just got back from Circuit City and was looking for the same thing. Saw a couple of small DVD players 6.5inch to under 5inch screen. To small if you ask me!!! They had a off brand 9-13 inch TV/DVD player Broksonyk I think was the name. Inexpensive!!! The smaller players were $200.00 plus. I looked at laptops also. The one I liked was a Toshiba w/ 17 inch screen, DVDplayer, Harmon Cardon speakers, Burner, All kinds of extra's it was $1800.00 after a rebate. Top it off the color of the case matched the blue on my boat!!!!!!

We justy picked up a flip screen 7" DVD player from Outpost.com, It's great for my 4 yr old at the lake, espeicially when he starts getting tired. I think I paid $270.00 or $300.00

Hell Im only selling cause I need one with a 14-15" screen and a faster processor this BIG screen is cool
But I rarely drag it out of the house. it stays here so I dont loose touch with OSO, If i sell it I have to have a day to transfer all my stuff and do a clean XP pro install
nothing like getting a clean fresh windows setup
I always install Mcaffe, adsgone, ad adware, Photoshop7, Office Xp pro too.
