1) That isn't convinient, especially for those who don't have a computer or prefer not to use one for quick and easy web browsing.Originally Posted by pizzaluvr
2) There is no such thing as a VGA to component or composite adapter. The signal has to be converted and converters for such purposes cost about $80.
And even then, have you ever seen the results of connecting a computer to the average TV? Let me tell you, it doesn't look pretty. For starters, you're limited to 640 x 480 resolution at 16 bit color. Second, you have to play with focus and moire reduction to even get anything that resembles well defined text. Third, you're limited to 60Hz refresh rate, which makes the screen flicker constantly.
3) VGA cables that long cost at LEAST $10, if not $15 or $20.
Therefore, the Wii browser is not only a better, but also cheaper solution for browsing on your TV.
