Silicon Mountain Allio High-Definition LCD TV

It's like having a big-box store in a single box. The Silicon Mountain Allio combines a big-screen HDTV with a Blu-ray/DVD player, an integrated DVR, and a Vista PC. The flagship 42-inch model features an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor, 4GB of memory, a terabyte of storage, a wireless keyboard, and 64-bit Windows Vista Home Premium for around $2800. A 32-inch LCD set with less hefty specs starts at $1699. Picture-in-picture and split-screen features allow you to integrate Internet content with broadcasts and disc-based entertainment, so you can watch NFL games while scanning stats at, or keep up with a game while you watch a Blu-ray disc.
