Most people buy a TV, speakers (if they even bother) and a player of some kind and it stays that way for many many years so the fact that most of it cannot be upgraded is no big deal.that is retarded. not unless if the components are upgradable.
Liked the Futurama mention.
Right, I think its a decent idea. But like I said, they need 5.1 surround since they are offering an HDTV and Bluray support. Plus $955 for a 24" is crazy expensive. I doubt even Apple would even have the balls to release this (internet tv, 2.1, stand) for that kind of money.Sony did a stand/piece of furniture with built in 5.1 speakers and whatnot ages ago ( Sony-RHT-G800-Bravia ). And other manufacturers have done similar stand/speaker/furniture units. Cables aren't so bad if you use spiral cable tidy stuff and sort it out nicely. I'm sure many "non-tech savvy" people might like this.
