Powered by a dual-core CPU, the LG Google TV touts fast menu navigation, web browsing, and video streaming. And let’s not forget about the redesigned Magic Remote Qwerty that combines a keyboard with point-and-click control. Better yet, this updated remote supports natural language recognition, which should help tremendously when you’re searching for content. Image quality also receives a boost as the extra processing power allows the TruPicture XD Engine to work more efficiently and effectively. For 3D, the LG Google TV employs LG’s Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology.
