LG TVPC Hybrid

Taking its integration of TVs beyond DVD players, LG today unveiled the TVPC, an LCD screen that merges the entire computer within the back of a 26-inch widescreen television's housing. The system is bundled with a remote that lets the system easily switch between its full TV and computer roles. LG adds that the TVPC can even link the two halves together, providing web-based content relating to a TV show. A wireless keyboard that also ships with the hybrid can control both the mouse pointer and key commands without a separate peripheral. Similarly, the system avoids further cabling by connecting the computer to its Internet access through Wi-Fi.

The launch edition of the TVPC is intended primarily for light viewing, according to the company's published hardware details. A 1.73GHz Celeron M, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB of storage are standard in the base system, which launches today for $2,005 in Korea. Upgraded systems capable of DVR functions and better overall performance are slated for release by the end of this month.
