So it begins....
Probably what some of us have been waiting for - basic PC functionality integrated within the TV.
As long as it can display video media files smoothly, this thing is a winner.
I've currently got a small form factor Shuttle box running ubuntu hooked up to my LCD TV, using Ethernet over mains for network access and a 2.4GHz wireless keyboard with a 10m range for tapping away from the sofa.
The wife loves the Net access and the ability to open office docs, watch DVD's and downloaded media from the internet. The bit she doesn't like is the PC itself, sat, tucked away, ever so quietly humming to itself and the wires.. did I mention the wires.
Now, stick it all in one unit, make it affordable and give it the ease of function of the eeePC ( We love ours !! ) and bingo.
I probably will not buy the first generation of these, but they will catch on quickly, very quickly, other manufacturers will follow and lets hope that none will be crippled with XP/Vista as I for one, don't want a BSOD whilst watching Prison Break !
ASUSuTek, got some lateral thinking employee's there. Smart company.
