I have a hard time accepting that Onkyo, long time home theater equipment manufacturer, is building computers.  This time around they’ve got a few all in one PCs branded with the Sotec name.  Yes, that is an iPod dock that is either built-in to the keyboard or base of the 21.5-inch monitor, which puts out 1080p.  The newest model, the E702A9 is powered by a Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, TV tuner, and 4x Blu-ray player.  There’s also a 1.3MP webcam, 2x 8W speakers and remote.

No word on a US release, but the Japanese can nab one for just over $1,800 (or you can opt for a lesser version as linked below).

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
