The Switchblade packs most of the features you'd expect from a netbook, including Wi-Fi, mini-HDMI, USB 3.0, standard audio out and microphone jacks, and adds integrated 3G network support to boot.

Yes, that's WiDi (for Intel Wireless Display), not WiFi. But WiDi does use Wi-Fi to wirelessly move anything on a notebook screen to an HDTV--provided that the notebook is powered by one of Intel's latest processors, and that the set either has WiDi support built in, or you add it by connecting a WiDi adapter to one of the set's inputs.
