An all-in-one, 42-inch PC-HDTV (whew)

Start-up Lumenlab tries to create the ultimate convergence box.


As Gateway showed recently, computer makers can still generate considerable buzz with an all-in-one machine. At the same time, more than a few TV makers are dabbling in their own Frankensteinian creations with combo PCs. Lumenlab is trying to do all of the above with an ultimate convergence product it calls simply the "Q" (we like).

The North Carolina start-up is developing a 42-inch 1080p HDTV that's also a self-contained computer with a terabyte of storage, 2GB of memory and an Intel Core Duo chip, Engadget says. That's pretty much all we know about it, other than a rather fetching photo of its aluminum case on the company's Web site. But that'll be enough to keep us coming back for more.
