Yesterday's SCMP had a brief review of the latest Apple iMac G5. Given that it has a 20" screen and can burn DVDs, I was assuming that it would also function as a PVR, but clearly it doesn't. This seems rather puzzling, though I suppose the obvious answer is that you can download stuff (illegally) rather than recording from TV.
My question therefore is whether it makes any sense to buy the iMac and some sort of add-on box (like this) that will handle TV signals, or to go for a PC with the Windows Media Centre, or just use an ordinary DVD/HDD recorder. Or maybe wait to Apple to add PVR functions to the iMac?
