Many PCs today have TV tuners built in to allow users to watch TV on the go. A few TVs also have Internet capabilities built-in, but very few TVs actually have a full PC inside. The Bristol TV/PC is set to debut this October and crams a full HTPC machine for surfing the net and doing basic computing inside the standard TV chassis.

The TV will come with 22-inch or 32-inch screens and will be Freeview TV compatible. The PC portion of the set is a netbook at its core with an Intel Atom CPU, Windows XP, 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM, Ethernet connection, a wireless keyboard, and a round air mouse.

The PC resolution is 1680 x 1050 and if the netbook internals are up to it, you should be able to view full 1080p video. Too bad, they didn’t cram the NVIDIA Ion platform into the TV. The 22-inch unit it set for an October debut at under £500.
