Sotec PC with iPod dock

Onkyo subsidiary Sotec recently introduced the first PC with a built-in iPod dock as part of it E7 series of media center PCs. With styling that takes cues from iMacs, the E7 combines a 21.6-inch, 1680x1050 LCD display and the computer's associated hardware into one unit. The standard CPU is a 2GHz Intel Pentium dual-core, though a 2.53GHz CPU is optional, and other specs can be optioned up to include 2GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive. Standard fare is 1GB of RAM and 160GB hard drive.

Other features include an NVIDIA GeForce 9300 video card, an integrated 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi module and Gigabit Ethernet. Windows Vista Home Basic is the pre-loaded OS. In keeping with the media center mission, an HDMI output is standard.

The PC also includes a DVD drive, built-in card reader as well as a 1.3-megapixel webcam. A wireless keyboard and mouse as well as Onkyo speakers rated to produce 8W each are part of the package as well, which starts at the equivalent of about $950 in Japan, with an October launch date. A fully loaded version with the 2.53GHz chip costs $1,560. [via Impress]

    Had to say it.

    Perhaps this is the proverbial, "Lipstick on a pig." we've heard tell of.
