Sharp Japan has launched the Internet AQUOUS line of displays which is a fusion of the famous AQUOUS LCD TVs and a PC.
Available in 32-inch or 37-inch models, these LCD TVs come with a mini-PC (PC-AX50M) powered by a Intel Core Duo T2300 processor and run on Windows XP Home Edition.
Also included is an HD tuner for recording your favourite shows with a touch of a button.
The included wireless keyboard has a built in trackball and with the remote you can perform majority of TV and recording functions.
Both the displays feature 1366?768 resolution, 1200:1 contrast ratio, 6ms reponse time, 550 cd/m2 brightness, one HDMI port, and a 176-degree viewing angle.
The Sharp Internet AQUOS TV range will go on sale at the end of May in Japan. The basic 32-inch model the LD-32SP1 should sell around 350,000 yen ($3,000) and has a 250GB hard drive. The top 37-inch model is expected to sell 550,000 yen ($4,700).
