Rock launches LCD TV with built-in PC

Rock Meivo PC TV Hybrid

System builder Rock on Friday launched the Meivo, a new-concept LCD set that it hopes will satisfy both present-day TV viewers and Internet-based viewing in the future. The 22-inch screen contains a full Core 2 Duo system in back, as well as a TV tuner that turns the computer into a full-fledged PVR for capturing shows. Onboard Wi-Fi also turns the set into an IPTV hub, Rock says. The slim profile still allows for two hard drive bays that can be used to either expand available storage or mirror it as a backup.

Appropriately, a wireless keyboard and mouse will ship with the system when it goes on sale in April, as will side-mounted USB ports to attach peripherals while the TV is flush against a well. Prices start at the equivalent of $1,943 in the UK with prices going up for added performance or storage. [via Tech Digest]
