LG to launch PC/TV hybrid

updated 09:55 am EST, Mon December 18, 2006

LG TVPC Hybrid

Taking its integration of TVs beyond DVD players, LG today unveiled the TVPC, an LCD screen that merges the entire computer within the back of a 26-inch widescreen television's housing. The system is bundled with a remote that lets the system easily switch between its full TV and computer roles. LG adds that the TVPC can even link the two halves together, providing web-based content relating to a TV show. A wireless keyboard that also ships with the hybrid can control both the mouse pointer and key commands without a separate peripheral. Similarly, the system avoids further cabling by connecting the computer to its Internet access through Wi-Fi.

The launch edition of the TVPC is intended primarily for light viewing, according to the company's published hardware details. A 1.73GHz Celeron M, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB of storage are standard in the base system, which launches today for $2,005 in Korea. Upgraded systems capable of DVR functions and better overall performance are slated for release by the end of this month.
