IKEA, how do you do it? Well, anyone familiar with the Sweden-based company would agree that their designs are simple, cheap and effective. You don't go walking into IKEA expecting the world for chump change. You expect your chump change to change your world. Your world being defined by the change in your pocket, and IKEA, have done it again.

Enter "Uppleva", an all-in-one TV and stand with storage built-in cooperation with China's TCL Multimedia. It also sports a Blu-ray/DVD player, surround sound and a wireless subwoofer. Details and specs on the TV are not available at the moment, but Uppleva also features USB ports, four HDMI ports, FM radio and internet connectivity.

Uppleva should come in various colors and designs, and should be popular for smaller houses, units, apartments, etc. Uppleva starts at 6,500 Swedish crowns (roughly $960). Not too bad considering what you get in the package itself.
