Which Way To The I-Way?

A sampling of Net cruisers

PC/TV: The living room of the future? These hybrids combine home PCs with 31-in. TV monitors. Gateway 2000 was first, but IBM and Compaq are working on similar products. Prices: $3,000 to $4,500.

GAME MACHINES: Apple's Pippin (not yet in stores) plays CD-ROM games and can cruise the Net. So can Sega's Saturn, with a special Web cartridge. Prices: $199 to $599.

INTERNET TVS: Sony and Philips are first with boxes to convert regular sets into Web cruisers. The add-ons are available for $325 to $350 this year. Expect to see Web-ready TVs next year.
