Will it just not work or what? I would think they would be able to considering a PC monitor and a TV are basically the same thing.

I dunno. Maybe it's not cost effective to make Plasma screens that small. I've never seen a Plasma TV smaller than 42 inches. They may exist, but i've never seen one.

I would also imagine they're incredibly energy inefficient to boot.

plasmas do not make good monitors. especially older plasmas. despite what people say if you leave it sitting on your desktop for 50 hours you can still get image retention.

Well Last I looked at TV's and saw the same movie being played on LCD and plasma throughout the store. I noticed that plasmas looked better but this was like 2-3 years ago though. But to me plasmas pn the way it produced color seemed to be a lot more vibrant than what LCDs could do.

What I'm saying is that plasmas are more trouble than they're worth.

Plasmas have poor pixel density. They can't make them that small with a decent resolution.
