My System Specs

Default 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.)
Phenom II 945 :: ASUS M4A78-E (780G) :: BFG 285GTX :: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 (5-4-4-12) :: Creative Xi-Fi :: Seagate 500 gig 7200.12 (better than WD BLACK!!!!!) :: Samsung 2493HM
