Looking for a PC thats not a PC !?!?!?

I am looking for a solution for my elderly father. He wants to surf the internet, preferably through his TV set...is this possible?

I know some years ago ON digital did a box that did this, but they went bust. Is there anyone else who provides this sort of thing?

Thanks for your help in advance.

It's a space & convenience thing really.

It would be great if I could find something whereby he connects through his TV (via a box probably) & sit in his chair with a wireless keyboard & mouse.

#5
how about buying a cheap laptop then connedting it to the tv via a VGA cable and buying a wireless USB keyboard and mouse?
#6
laptop?
#7
A cheap flatbed computer (one that lies down instead of stands up) would be a good idea with a wireless mouse and keyboard.
Get a TV Out card and plug it into the tv.
#8
or even a cheap pc..and using it in the same way?
#9
cheapest option would be a wii, have a laugh at the same time!
#10
Bush made something called 'Internet TV' a while ago. I dunno if you can still get it though.

get a GFX card with TV-out and connect your TV to your PC
#15
Does he have a HD telly............. (Probably a silly question but hopefully he does!, lol!)

the wii would be a good way, but might be a tricky to get used to for him
#17
He has a HD ready 32" LCD TV

Get a small factor form pc (one of the cubes) with a wirless keyboard and mouse and you'll be all sorted.
