According to a company press release posted on engadgethd.com, interactive computing solutions company Silicon Mountain Holdings is unveiling the Allio LCD TV series, featuring an integrated PC and Blu-ray player.
The release continues by saying that the systems are available in 32- and 42-inch screen sizes. They are also available in multiple configurations with models featuring different size hard drives and processors. The flagship Allio is a 42-inch, 1080p LCD TV that features an Intel Core2Duo E8400 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and the 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium. The set also incorporates a Blu-ray/DVD player and a digital video recorder. Additionally, the set features built-in speakers, six USB ports, wired and wireless network options, and two HDMI inputs.
The release notes that in addition to the obvious advantages of the set (such as surfing the Web on TV and storing entire iTunes or DVD libraries in one location), it also has picture-in-picture and split-screen capabilities that allow users to, for example, surf the Web, watch a Blu-ray movie, and use a word processor simultaneously.
The Allio sets are assembled in Northern California and retail for $1,600–$2,800.
