Toshiba Launches First Notebook With HD DVD-ROM Drive
Toshiba today announced the launch of the world's first notebook PC with an HD DVD-ROM drive. Qosmio G30/697HS will be available in the Japanese market in mid-May, as the latest product in Qosmio line-up of AV notebook PC series. Along with playback of HD DVD content, the new Qosmio can read and write to current DVD and CD discs, including DVD+/-R DL (dual-layer) and DVD-RAM.
The slim-type 12.7mm-thick HD DVD-ROM drive achieves this thin form factor with an optical system requiring only a single objective lens to read HD DVD discs and to read and write to DVDs and CDs. The HD playback is supported by Intel Core Duo Processor T2500 CPU (2.00GHz) and NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics.
The Qosmio G30/697HS integrates two TV tuners, one for digital terrestrial broadcasts, the other for analog terrestrial broadcasts. As users watch their choice of program - analog or digital - the separate tuners allow them to record both, what they are watching as well as a program from the other tuner all at the same time.
The novelty also features a 17-inch diagonal widescreen with 1920x1200 resolution. Beyond this, the new Qosmio also integrates an HDMI output in its external interface, allowing the PC to be hooked up to an HDTV and to act as the video source for a large-sized TVs or home theater projectors.
