Buy big, as big as your room will take. If you use your TV as a computer display at 5ft or further, your eyes will thank you.
I assume you have internet connection or you can't post here but why can you connect your laptop to internet but not your smart TV? Just wondering.

Just an FYI, an article in propublica notes that Vizeo has agreed to no longer automatically spy on your viewing habits and link it to your IP to get your phone number to sell to advertisers and data hounds.

It no longer supports Amazon Prime, and you can’t get a directory to come up with a USB drive.
Look on ebay cyberous and see if someone may be selling an older one from before they changed it


Good luck!
