Okay, now this is just getting ridiculous. We know Onkyo has a long history
of building iPod docks, but to see the company build an entire all-in-one PC around the feature is a little much, especially when -- once again
-- the iPhone isn't invited to the party. No, when the E713 series ships in Japan next month at or around the ¥99,880 (about $1100) price point, it will include up to a Core i5-650
processor, 4GB of RAM, a digital TV tuner, Blu-ray drive, 1TB hard drive and loads of ports behind that 23-inch, 1920 x 1080 LCD screen, but a slide-out iPod classic / nano / touch dock that apparently can't accommodate the iPhone's portly frame. That's discrimination
, right there -- or at least we'll keep on telling ourselves that, since we're all out of sour grapes.
