SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., Aug. 21 // -- Westinghouse Digital Electronics, one of the top five LCD manufacturers in the U.S.*, gives students the ultimate back-to-school package this fall that will help them achieve those coveted "A+" grades and provide a great way to enjoy well-earned free time: A complete Computer/TV system, which includes a laptop computer and 19" HD-Ready LCD TV.

Available exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide, the back to school bundle retails at $989 and features a 14.1" widescreen laptop computer, Westinghouse Digital's brilliant LTV-19w6 19" HD-Ready LCD TV, a USB keyboard and USB optical mouse.

The Westinghouse laptop utilizes a WXGA TFT-Active Matrix widescreen display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, and Intel® Celeron® 410 M Processor (1.46 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1MB Cache) and Genuine Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition. The notebook utilizes an ATI® Xpress 200M Graphics card, 60GB Hard Drive, 512MB DDR2 SDRAM, 8x CD/DVD+/-RW w/Double Layer Support and Internal 802.11b/g Wireless LAN. The computer also includes a 4-in-1 Memory Card Reader and Built-in Microphone.

The Westinghouse LTV-19w6 is a 19" HD-Ready 1440 x 900 Widescreen TV that includes two HD Inputs and Integrated speakers. The display can be used as a TV, a computer monitor and a display device for viewing DVDs and playing online and computer games. Having the two screens promotes increased productivity and allows for the multi-tasking environment the student of today demands.

"The Westinghouse bundle we created for the back-to-school market provides students with the tools necessary to compete and stay ahead in the technology-driven academic race of the 21st century," states Rey Roque, Vice President of Marketing at Westinghouse Digital Electronics. "The bundle provides a high-end, yet affordable solution that will enable students to maximize their academic pursuits and also utilize the system for entertainment purposes as well."

Perfect for students living on campus and in dorm rooms, the Westinghouse laptop is portable and lightweight, weighing in at just over five pounds. With its built-in wireless access and dual-layer DVD burner, the notebook is ideal for any student on the move. Moreover, with its sleek design, the 14.1" widescreen is not much larger than a traditional 12.1" laptop when opened, making it a stellar travel companion.

The Westinghouse bundle is ideal for today's savvy multitasking students, allowing for two screen, real-time productivity. A student can run Instant Messaging and e-mail on the laptop screen while running separate applications on the high resolution TV. This enables many tasks to be completed at the same time, an absolutely necessity for today's college or high school student.

The Westinghouse bundle also offers exceptional total value. Many of today's 19" LCD TVs retail for well over $500 alone. At just $989, the Westinghouse bundle provides students with a powerful laptop computer and a high-quality LCD TV at an affordable cost.

The Westinghouse bundle is the perfect gift for students living on a tight budget. Parents and grandparents can rest assured that their loved students are heading off to school with the necessary tech tools to help them succeed and, most importantly, make the grade.
