TV Buying Advice Please

I'm leaning to buy a entry level 32" 720 lcd tv for my college apartment. I just need it to last about five years. All I need it to do is play Netflix movies and allow me to hook up my laptop to the tv using a male to male hdmi cable then I'd channel the sound from my laptop to my surround sound system using a 3.5m aux to rca adapter.

All I need it to do is the ability to connect my laptop to the tv and play netflix movies.

I don't watch tv personally, cause if your a computer geek like me, you'll watch it all online for a much cheaper rate.

I have the budget of $340.00 maximum. (this includes tax and shipping)

This the tv I'm leaning towards:

It's a 32" 720p tv and it looks like it can be suitable for my needs. I am not good with hardware specifications. So I was wondering...if someone with knowledge can advise me. I can make another posting regarding the other two possibilities that I narrowed down to. But I'd like to buy this one, if possible.

I just been saving a ton of money, since I'm an unemployed full time college student and I want to make sure my investment last at least through my college years and until I get my first full time job. So I want to make my investment count the first time around.

Thanks for the advice.
