You’ve probably been waiting years for the day when computers and televisions would truly become a single device. Well, that day has come and you can now have a 42″ flat screen television that also happens to be a full-on computer as well. Cast your aspersions aside about this HDTV-PC, because this is not some under-powered computer married to an over-priced television as you can choose your memory and storage capacity with the default configuration available for around $2000.
The PC half is powered by an Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 processor with and integrated Intel GMA X4500HD video card with an HVR-950Q TV Tuner. As you can customize the Allio TV-PC like any other regular computer; you have the option of 1GB, 2GB or 4GB of memory and hard disk options of 250GB, 500GB, 750GB or a massive 1TB of storage as well as Dual Layer 8X DVDRW to play and burn DVDs. Need to connect to a computer network? No problem, thanks to the Gigabit 10/100/1000 ethernet card and the 802.11b/g wireless card. What kind of computer would this be if it didn’t come with a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse as standard equipment. Again, you’re getting full computing technology with this LCD television and comes with Microsoft Vista Home Premium installed, so you can use your computer as a television or vice versa.
The television specifications are decent as well, as you’re getting a 42″ LCD wide screen with high definition 1080p resolution, so you’re prepared for HD television in 2009. Along with the 2000:1 contrast and 176 degree viewing angle, you’ll be able to watch a crisp picture from almost anywhere in the room. Easily connect other digital devices and A/V components through the multiple connection points that include 6 USB 2.0 ports, 2 HDMI ports and 1 x S-Video among others. As well as a great picture, you’ll get great sound from the two 12 watt speakers or connect this Dolby certified TV to a home theater system for 7.1 channel surround sound. With all of these features, you can see that the Allio 42” MediaCenter HDTV PC is more than just a television and more than just computer.
