Westinghouse Laptop LCD TV
Most college-bound students are virtually ready to move out and take residence in their dorms, which ensures that many of them are searching for a new laptop or a TV for those idle moments on campus. Westinghouse believes that at least some of these students are looking for an inexpensive way to get both devices at the same time. Its new laptop and LCD TV bundle does just that. The 14-inch laptop's features are modest: a 1.46 GHz Celeron M, DVD writer, integrated graphics, and 60GB hard drive are just enough for class work and little else. A 19-inch TV included with the bundle, however, makes the package more interesting: it features one VGA and two component inputs, which will let that student plug the TV in as either an HDTV or computer display. The bundle's true selling point is the price: $989 purchases both units at once, which gives students an easy way to furnish their dorm room without consuming too much space. You can find the bundle now at Wal-Mart stores in the US.
