LG launches 'TVPC'

lg da70 'tvpc'

LG has jumped into the PCTV market, offering a widescreen display with what is essentially a notebook computer built into the chassis. You can tell LG's approaching this convergence thing from the opposite direction to everyone else: it calls its product a TVPC.

The DA70 is based on an 1.73GHz Celeron M 430 processor, 1GB of DDR 2 memory, a 160GB hard drive and an Intel 945M chipset which incorporates the chip giant's GMA950 integrated graphics engine. It has Wi-Fi and a 14-in-one memory card reader.

All this computer technology fits into a chunky 72 x 47 x 10cm flat-panel TV casing. The TVPC is set to ship in South Korea for around KRW1,850,000 ($2,004/£1,027/€1,533). ®
