Today a question came across my mind, is it possible to hook up cable to an external monitor or Mac/PC? I found this (http://www.amazon.com/Diamond-Multimedia-Capture-Device-VC500MAC/dp/B007QCIBX8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343613160&sr=8-1&keywords=TV+Tuner+Devices+for+mac) and thought it might work. Does anyone have any suggestions?
The only reason I'm asking this is because this fall I'm entering college and I'm looking to buy a Dell IPS 24" LED 1080P Display but recently discovered that my room has a cable connection. It'd be nice if I could have the display and watch cable on it instead of buying an HDTV; they seem to always be more expensive..
Thanks so much!

Yeah, you can, but that doesn't look HD though. You'd only get SD video, as it doesn't have an HDMI or even a Component connection.
If you have a cable provider, check if they offer a TV on PC option like Time Warner does:
Otherwise, you'd plug in your cable box like so and you'd just fire up the program to view the video and it will look like so:
