The Toshiba qosmio was my first laptop with a hd-dvd drive on and the thing cost me $5000 in your money as it was purchased in the UK. seems like years ago now i had that. was a very good laptop though. but me alienware is bad ass compared to that now. awesome speakers on the qosmio though
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.
