    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.

    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.

    You dont' really need a VGA cable. My card has S-video so i don't even need to buy any cords. But like teqguy said, it's limited to 640x480 and 16bit colors. But still, i think it's cool to watch your friends play CS:S and get pwned by other players
