Finally giving in and getting a ginormous screen. What is going to work best with what I have and what I want to do.

Previously we had an old 'box' (non-flat screen, non-HD) TV, which we hooked up to our MacBook Pro to play dvds and stream BBC iPlayer and Lovefilm. Got rid of the box, and have just been watching media on the iMac.
So now I have the chance to buy a big f-off screen tax-free, but have no idea what to get.
I want to be able to run stuff through the Macbook. I have no need for 'antenna'or cable TV. I already have a great sound system, so that is not an issue either. I just need recommendations for what to look for in a screen, especially what to look for in one that I will be hooking up to a macbook to play dvds - and should I really care too much about internet-connectivity in the screen itself if I am running the Macbook.
Also, I don't have a huge room - what is the best ratio of screen size to distance from the screen?
