Cybernet PC TV brings the office to the lounge room

AEA (Advanced Energy Australia) has launched Cybernet PC TV -- a multifunction system that combines the capabilities of a high resolution television, CD player, DVD player and fax machine. The system is reportedly not much bigger than a VCR and is operated by a cordless remote keyboard.

In a statement, AEA claimed that with Cybernet PC TV "your computing can be done from the comfort of your lounge chair and that one fully featured product could meet all your home or office entertainment or business needs". According to AEA, the new device can be used to play music and movies and to surf the Web. It can also be used to view free-to-air and pay television.

Powered by a 233MHz processor, the Cybernet PC TV has 64MB SDRAM, a 4.3GB hard drive, a 2x DVD-ROM drive, a 56KBps modem and an MPEG II/Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder. Windows 98 comes preinstalled. The unit has parallel, serial and USB port connections, so it can be used with printers, scanners, digital cameras and joysticks.

Pricing is dependent on the screen size selected. With the 68cm colour screen (the only option currently available) the Cybernet PC TV has an RRP of $5,495.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
