TV Tuners - Please recommend.
Looking for a media center class laptop with NTSC TV Tuner (embedded). Years ago it seemed like each of the big manufacturers had a class like this

Toshiba Qosmio
HP Pavillion "Dragon"
Dell Studio XPS

... the high-end models seemed to have built in TV tuners. Are these all gone? Anyone see models with TV tuners embedded? if not.. what kind of PC card would you recommend for use with MCE on these things?

thanks in advance

Tier 2 and under manufacturers need not apply (Acer, Gateway, MSI, etc.)
