The 'Q' uber-machine gets a sibling

With less powerful features, the "Q42" HDTV-PC still goes for $3,850.


If you've lusted after the mysterious "Q" uber-box but choked on the $10,000 price tag, you're in luck: Lumenlab, which makes the all-in-one HDTV-PC, has come up with another model that verges on the affordable.

The "Q42" has just come out of beta, according to the company, and is available for $3,850. The specs aren't quite as ridiculously over-the-top as its "Qmax" predecessor, but it's definitely no slouch either: The Q42 comes with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor, 2GB of memory, a 1TB hard drive, and a 42-inch LCD TV in full 1080p high definition.

All of this horsepower is housed in the same 3.5-inch-thick handmade aluminum frame that encases its older sibling. And, as to be expected, upgrades are available on just about everything. In case anyone was looking for a Valentine's Day gift for us, please consider this a screaming hint.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
