Sharp Refreshes Internet AQUOS Range

In case you haven't already succumbed to the temptation of an HTPC, or at least a living room system of some sort, then Sharp's latest Internet AQUOS line may well tempt you to part with some cash. The trio of new systems are being shipped sans-monitor and geared towards users who already have a screen, in the form of a TV... preferably an AQUOS, one presumes.

The three flavours of the Internet AQUOS were announced: the base spec 'PC-AX30V' with a 1.6GHz Celeron, 1GB of DDR2 RAM and a 160GB hard drive, the mid-range 'PC-AX80V' which adds a digital TV tuner and HDMI input and the top dog 'PC-AX120V' which packs a 1.66GHz Core 2 T5500 processor (yes that is a notebook part) and 250GB hard drive.

All three systems offer HDMI out, a single Firewire connector and four USB ports for connecting your various peripherals. More interestingly a supremely cool-looking remote control and keyboard combo is also bundled - the latter boasting a trackpad and mouse buttons.

Most importantly, though, the systems look gorgeous in shiny black, white and red variants, even if the latter is unlikely to blend well with a home theatre set-up. Sharp has the new line slated to launch within the next few weeks but you'll have to roll dice to guess the pricing (I'm guessing it goes beyond a pair of sixes - Gordon) which wasn't announced.
