Can someone give me an educated guess when Plasma TVs will be affordable to the average joe? When I say affordable I mean 42' models going for $1300 or so with the bigger sets running at about $2500. Please don't insult my intelligence by telling me they won't. I've learned a few things here and there about electronics over the years. 1. Novelty will wear off 2. Manufacturers will compete. 3 Prices will go down. It's just the way the world works. That aside, I just wondered if anyone has some information regarding newer models on the horizon with less of a pricetag. The New Gateway 42' for $3k is at least a step in the right direction. I'm not being cheap I just can't afford 6k for a televsion. Plain and simple. Someone help me out here. I'm tired of saying no when the best buy people ask if the can help me. - Matt p.s. I think they're on to me.
