Sharp Aquos PC-AX

Japanese electronics maker Sharp is famous for the LCD televisions on which the company now depends, but until now it has never seen fit to join Sony and others in using its advantage in the television business to make home theater PCs. The company's first steps into the field begin with its new Aquos PC-AX sets. Each model has a 20-inch, 1366x768 LCD screen and a slim-profile computer controlled with a keyboard/trackball board and remote. The base PC-AX50M is modest, driven by a 1.6GHz Celeron M, 512MB of RAM, and an analog-only TV tuner for recording to its 250GB drive. At the higher end is the PC-AX100M, which receives a 1.66GHz Core Duo, 1GB of RAM, a digital TV tuner and an ample 500GB hard drive. Both versions ship in late September for equivalent prices of $2075 and $2940 US respectively. It remains to be seen whether Sharp will follow Sony's practices and introduce the PC-AX to North America.
