Apple, Please Steal Some Ideas from the Onkyo Sotec Media PC

The new iMac is a pretty attractive machine, but a bundled TV Tuner, Blu-ray burner and an iPod dock would set the design over the top.

Onkyo's Sotec is an all-in-one media PC featuring a Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz processor, 2GB/4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, 21.5-inch screen, TV Tuner, 4X Blu-ray player, webcam and iPod dock—plus a remote control to run things from the couch.

In Japan only for the time being, the Sotec actually (starts at?) $1900, which actually makes it less of a value proposition than the bigger $1500 iMac...that is, if you just view the system as a computer and not a complete home theater PC. [Impress via Newlaunches]
