CyberpowerPC announced a laptop bundle that enables users to stream content to a large-screen TV via WiFi in full 1080p. It follows that users can browse the Internet with the same connection, using the TV as a monitor.

The bundle is comprised of a Netgear Push2TV 2.0 adapter and Intel’s WiDi technology and will ship with CyberpowerPC’s Xplorer X6-9100 ($825) and 9200 ($885) notebooks for a limited time.

Share Wireless Content with Intel WiDi and Netgear Push2TV

BALDWIN PARK, CA (December 15, 2011) – There’s no need to crowd around a laptop screen to view and share content from your hard disk, home network or browser. CyberpowerPC, www.cyberpowerpc.com, a leading manufacturer of custom gaming desktop PCs, gaming notebooks, and performance workstations, today announced a pair of high-performance laptop computers that combine Netgear’s Push2TV 2.0 adapter and Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) technology, which allow you to enjoy personal and online content on a big screen TV with a simple wireless connection.

For a limited time CyberpowerPC is bundling its Xplorer X6-9100 and Xplorer X6-9200 series of gaming notebooks with a free Netgear PUSH2TV (Version 2.0) adapter for Intel WiDi 1080P, and a visibly smart 2nd generation Intel Core processor. The combination lets you kick back and experience your favorite movies, videos, photos, online shows and even game in full HD on your big screen TV with outstanding image clarity and sound.

Simply connect the wireless Netgear PUSH2TV adapter to your High-Def TV, follow a few simple steps, and you are ready to beam full HD 1080P straight to the big screen. Experiencing your videos and pictures in HD resolution up to 1080p on your TV is as easy as pushing a button. You can also surf the internet from your couch on your TV; watch TV shows and movies online, or go anywhere a web browser will take you.

I hope Widi has gotten better then it was a few years ago. When I worked at Bestbuy we always had problems getting it to work well. Also the range on it was quite dismal

Wireless is cool if you need it but a simple HDMI cable will do the trick I believe. Still wouldn't have figured, back in the past, that you would be streaming 1080P picture wirelessly. Makes you excited about the future.

WiDi has been improved to the point that it can support 1080p but performance depends on the system. Like the upcoming Cedar Trail netbooks will also support WiDi but only up to 600p.

It's not a matter of need as much as simple convenience. Since a cable has limited length, hard to keep out of the way, and you have to go through the trouble of connecting and disconnecting as needed. Versus a always available wireless connection that once set up only needs to be activated and deactivated as needed.

Though there are other competing wireless streaming technology besides WiDi that may be more promising and some don't require proprietary technology like WiDi. Something that people who don't want to be limited in choices on their WiFi cards may prefer for example.

Let's hope the bugs have been worked out of WiDi. Great price for the laptops with free Netgear PUSH2TV adapter.

Never stop learning... until you're dead.
