LG W1PRO Digital TV Laptop

LG boosted its W1 notebook PC line today by unveiling the W1PRO DUAL. The 17-inch portable is one of the few outside of Asia to support digital TV tuning and will pick up HD over-the-air broadcasts in DVB-T form -- including the 5.1 Dolby Surround audio on certain channels. The use of Vista Home Premium automatically transforms the desktop replacement into a personal video recorder for capturing favorite shows.

Performance is strong to match, with either a 1.83GHz or 2GHz Core 2 Duo for a processor and a 256MB Mobility Radeon X1600 onboard for accelerating 3D and movies at the system's native 1680x1050. Weight is also less of a concern at a manageable 6.8 pounds, LG notes. The new leader of LG's notebooks will be available soon in Australia for $2,600 US and should make its way to other regions that support DVB-T soon. [via Gizmag]
