Allio All-in-One HDTV PC

When I told the guys at Ilumina last November that it’s highly probable some sort of iTV or PC TV might appear at CES 2009, I didn’t actually thought it would be as good as the Allio HDTV PC.

Allio made two variants — a 32″ and 42″ HDTV powered by an Intel Atom and can be upgraded to Intel Core 2 Duo and runs Windows Media Center.

    Ouch!
    That was a big slap at the Innovent team.
    What took them so long to release their Illumina?
    Hmmmm…
    Well, now that this thing came out at the CES, there will be a slight chance for the Illumina to top this up when its launch. This Allio’s features/specification is really tempting since its price is not that way too expensive from a regular LCD HDTV, if Im going to buy a new HDTV, I probably will not buy the TV yet but I probably save more so that I can avail this product.
    Now that this product release its projected price ranged the Illumina should contest that price and take in consideration that they will also launch it here in the Philippines.
    So, lets just wait for this match-up, for me Illumina’s price will determine its future. :)

    Hm…pretty good prices considering you are getting a PC with a 1080P capable TV. It would be much better if they tagged this with the Nvidia ION setup though and I’m quite afraid with the contrast: 1200:1? Come on!

    Dapat target nang innovent mga big contractors like malls and airports. Can’t they make a smaller screen LCD with WiFi? Mga 15 inches. Cheaper alternative for tablet laptops.

    Hope running on Windows Vista is not disappointing. Mabagal due to security features.

    Even before Illumina and Allio, HP has had the HP TouchSmart PC that has a TV tuner. You can now buy this PC at 21 and 25 inch.
