Toshiba Corp plans to market a personal computer that plays digital video discs and can be connected to a television, according to the Nikkei Daily News. The company hopes the new product, priced at about $2000, will make up for sluggish sales of its Internet TVs. The PC, called Vision Connect, is said to be about one-quarter the size and one-third the weight of conventional desktop machines. It features a 133-megahertz Pentium microprocessor, 32mb of RAM and a 1.4-gigabyte hard disk. Its DVD-ROM drive doubles as an 8X CD-ROM drive. The model comes with a wireless keyboard and a remote control and can also be used as a telephone. Monthly output is pegged at 3,000 machines. Toshiba plans to introduce the product on June 10 in Japan and later this year in the US.
