Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD) is demonstrating its new Qosmio audio-video notebook computer with integrated HD DVD-R optical drive,at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2007 in Las Vegas this week.
The new multimedia notebook can burn up to 30 GB of data onto a single HD DVD recordable disc. The HD DVD-R optical drive also plays HD DVD movies at a resolution that is six times sharper than the DVD format.
Taking advantage of the capabilities of its included genuine Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate operating system, Qosmio pushes the digital entertainment envelope further by incorporating an HDTV tuner, enabling Qosmio to natively receive high-definition digital television content. With the ability to not only burn HD DVDs but work natively as a high-definition TV tuner and digital video recorder, the Qosmio becomes a full-featured high-definition multimedia center.
Pricing, availability, specific model number and configuration for the Qosmio with integrated HD DVD-R will be announced in the first quarter of 2007.
