...here I've just got sick of lugging my 17" Toshiba through myriad airports, ready to downsize, and this damned son of a bitch shows up and tempts me. I wonder if it would even be physically possible to use it in a coach seat... Even -this- thing looks like a 52" TV when you crack it open in 32A.
Won't look so cool with stuff plugged into it
Imagine the desktop with USB, iLink and other cables plugged in. The connections panels should be swing-able around the back.
Er, they do. And have done for some time.
Asus makes both Sony and Apple products...
Where's the market?
The integrated-in-the-telly jobs look nice, but it does rather scupper upgrading so you're out a rather pricey monitor when the PC gets a bit long in the tooth (i.e. when the next Redmond bloatfest turns up).
Of course, Apple have been doing this sort of thing for years, but I can't see the sort of people who buy Macs becoming sudden PC converts and they would appear to be the target market for these products.
Of course, if they ship 'em with no O/S along with Linux drivers for all the components as both source and compiled for the major distros.............Fat f***ing chance of that though given Sony's vested interest in HDCP and BD DRM.
Sony and Apple
Have collaborated for a long time.
