Celrun LLUON A1 PC IPTV
Korea's Celrun recently introduced the LLUON A1, a new combo computer which doubles as an Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) in addition to its role as a PC. Users can also watch regular TV on the A1. The 18.4-inch LCD screen depends on a TV-level 16:9 aspect ratio and a 1680x954 resolution, and switches its operating system based on the context: it reverts to Windows as the operating system when in PC mode and Linux for IPTV service.
On the hardware end, an Intel Atom processor rated at 1.6GHz works along with 1GB of RAM to operate the applications, and users get a 160GB HDD to store recorded TV shows. A DVD multi-drive allows both viewing movies and making backups. As a true all-in-one, both stereo speakers and a microphone for voice chat are integrated into the design.
The LLUON A1 is expected to debut in Korea, with Europe and North America markets covered as well, although specific release or pricing information has not been released. [via Akihabara]
