IRVINE, Calif. (BusinessWire EON) September 25, 2007 -- Toshiba's Digital Product Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced that it has further expanded its lineup of HD DVD-ROM capable notebook computers to give users the industry's fullest portfolio of high-definition mobile computing solutions mixing price points and screen sizes. These five HD DVD-based notebooks will be showcased this week during the DigitalLife tradeshow in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Booth (#621) this week.

The five Toshiba HD DVD enabled notebook computers, include the Qosmio® G45, Qosmio F45, Satellite® X205, Satellite P205 and Satellite A205 with select configurations starting as low as $1,1491. These HD DVD enabled notebooks feature high-definition widescreen displays with resolutions of either 720p or 1080p and sizes ranging from 15.4-inches to 17-inches.

Along with the attractive price points of the HD DVD notebook and a growing number of approximately 330 HD DVD movie titles, such as 300, Disturbia, Heroes, The Matrix Trilogy, Letters from Iwo Jima, Smokin' Aces and Dream Girls, Toshiba is offering a limited time giveaway incentive. With the purchase of a HD DVD enabled Toshiba notebook, consumers qualify to receive five HD DVD titles for free, from a selection of 15 popular titles, via a mail-in offer.

Toshiba's answer to the PS3.

Looks like a strong commitment in laptops, but to credibly offset the PS3 effect they'll need a stronger push from the 360 as well as China IMO.

Wow, those are very tempting. I've never spent more than about $1600 for a computer before, though. However, that computer was a Toshiba and it was one of my favorite desktop computers I've ever owned. Maybe the price will drop a little by March when tax returns come in!

Sure would be nice if they better supported the people who bought their earlier HD-DVD laptops. It's been a year and I'm -still- trying to get HD-DVD playback to work on my G35-AV650 Qosmio. Buyer beware is all I can advise at this point.

Is there a thread in this forum regarding Toshiba HD-DVD equiped laptops? Just got one and I'm already having issues with it not acknowledging "300" as an HD DVD....

You have to boil the laptop to get it to work.

At least you don't have a buy another one in a few months to just to watch cool Picture-in-Picture extras, and then another one next year to experience cool web-enabled content.
