Do you mean a Roku? Those don't connect to a computer. They connect to a TV. They can connect to your wireless network.

As to whether having a Roku is worth it, well it depends if you will use it. It allows you to stream media from the internet or from your computer directly to your TV; YouTube, NetFlix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO, etc as well as many other sources.

There's different versions of Roku devices, three different Roku boxes and a cheaper Roku stick and it can also be built into the latest TV's themselves.

The normal use of a Roku doesn't involve a PC at all so you having Windows 7 doesn't really matter. There are some local streaming media options and the new screen casting options that do require a PC but those are optional and not the main use for a Roku; those do of course work with Windows 7.

It also works with any high-speed or broadband connection, you just need a router which you almost certain would already have.

So without knowing what exactly you are looking at, a TV with an external Roku, a TV with Roku built in, a computer with a Roku device thrown in as a gift, and which exact TV it is, and what prices it sells at with and without Roku its hard to say if the deal is worth it or not.
