You need to get a computer that has a TV-out connection - something most new computers these days will have as standard. But don't assume it will definitely have one as some PC's may have integrated graphics or a very basic graphics card & no TV-out. As the others have said, look in the spec & ask for this at the time of purchase.

"does this mean i can watch a dvd ex my computer on a tv in the sitting room via a cable? aerial or whatever?"

No, basically TV-out means you can connect your PC to your TV (with the appropiate cables & adapters), & use your TV as a display or watch a DVD INcluding your PC - some good info/advice click here. G

You can't insure it, but you could ensure it...:-)

Yes of course you can insure it, ask any insurance broker but surely it is already covered by your home and contents policy.

Consult an insurance company?

I know sarcasm is the lowest form of humour but I was only doing a bit of leg pulling...:-)
