I know that apps can and will differ between displays and BluRay/media players and maybe because of that one would want to buy both with smarts. But if the apps were the same, why duplicate it? My thinking is let the BluRay/Medai player handle the smarts and buy the best picture quality and the largest possible screen size one can get without the smarts.
