When I first saw this Dell Inspiron Mini 10 with built in TV tuner, my first thoughts were about the 6 hours I spent at the Atlanta airport last December. For anyone who has been stuck in an airport for any length of time knows, it can get boring after the first few hours. One can only eat so many meals, read so many newspapers or books before one wants for another form of entertainment. Those TV’s in the airports are usually always tuned to a 24 hour news broadcast that gets stale after viewing the same news over and over again.

So when I read these specifications for this Dell mini, I thought how great it would be to have a computer with a built in TV tuner.

Watch Live TV on Your Dell Mini 10
Turn your PC into a TV, personal video recorder, and entertainment center with the AVerTV Hybrid NanoExpress ATSC TV Tuner from Dellâ„¢. With this built-in tuner, users can simply watch, pause, rewind, as well as schedule Live TV recording right under their finger tips.

Comments welcome.
