Hong Kong-based Quataris has rolled out another Linux-based all-in-one PC, this one also doubling as a TV and, from the looks of it, a tray table. While the unit is apparently "fully customizable," going for the base configuration will get you a 19-inch 1440 x 900 display, a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processor, 256MB of RAM (upgradeable to 2GB), an 80GB hard drive, Intel GMA950 integrated graphics, and a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive -- as well as, of course, a TV tuner, able to handle NTSC, PAL, and SECAM signals. SUSE Linux is your only option for a pre-installed OS, but if that's not your style, it is fully compatible with Windows XP, and even Vista, according to Quataris, although you'll probably want to opt for the RAM upgrade (at the very least) if you're planning on going that route. Measurements come in at a luggable 18.3 x 16.6 x 3.1 inches with prices starting at an even 1,000 Euros (or about $1,300).
