    What next, the IKEA-puter and IKEA-Pad?
    Surely all IKEA have to do is sell you the case and then offer a selection of internals - voila a self-assembly IKEA computer!

    How good it will be is all dependent on the built in TV. Having seen some awful no brand TVs included M&S dire line up i'm not holding up much hope. Would have rather seen them do a joint effort with samsung, lg or similar....

    £600 for a 24" TV+stand is way too expensive don't you think.

    I think they've realised people throw away perfectly good TVs now adays because they want 3D or an extra 10 inches.

    So why not get them to have to throw away some perfectly bad chipboard furniture too....

    Bad move IKEA. While I like the shop for decent value furniture (half of my rented property is furnished that way and doesn't show any signs of wear 4 years from the date it was bought) I don't see anyone buying TVs and other stuff integrated. Provide the furniture and cable routing - the rest is up to customer (unless every second man in some parts of the world is now watching TV in bed and looking sad and chubby; for market like that - yes maybe).

    Wasn't there a tv that came our of the end of a bed from somewhere, wasn't ikea though. Ceuldn't upgrade the tv though which i think was 720p and accessibility was a nightmare. So bad idea in general i think.

    Re: News - IKEA unveil furniture with built-in TV and Blu-ray

    Lets face it this is for people who HAVE to have a 100% ikea home. No one else will bother. I like their furniture - its cheap, strong and goes together well (unlike Tesco/argos/other cheap flat pack) but i'd never get it. For someone with ikea kitchen with ikea oven+fridge etc this is just another easy sale for them.

    The built-in TV is made by the same company that makes Alcatel mobile phones.

    I like some of the new stuff they're doing, going away from the boring matte white furniture into something more stylish

    This isn't the shiny future I envisaged for combining TV with furniture!

    Don't be silly. Why would anyone manufacture anything under their own names, when they can license their name to the Chinese?
