Oppo 20-inch LCD TV
LCD televisions follow a standard aesthetic of hard edges in black or silver, with few exceptions to the rule. One such exception, the Oppo Digital LT-2007 is notable not just for its white, rounded shell but the clear inspiration from earlier Apple hardware designs. The new LCD and DVD player all-in-one unit features a display bezel and back shell reminiscent of Apple's portrait-style Cinema Display line discontinued in 2004. In terms of functionality, the LT-2007 is built as a personal television intended chiefly for the kitchen or other small spaces. It has a 20-inch, 800x600 screen and a DVD system capable of playing regular movies in addition to DivX, XviD, and photo CDs. An integrated 5-in-1 card reader handles photos from digital cameras. Oppo's television is on sale now for $599; click through for photos of the back and side.
