Toshiba Ships First U.S. Notebook Computer with HD DVD-R Drive


Toshiba's new Qosmio G45-AV680 notebook supports full 1080p playback and it is capable of burning up to 30 GB on to single recordable HD DVD.

Toshiba today announced the availability of the Qosmio G45-AV680, an audio-video notebook computer with Dolby surround sound technology and the first U.S. model to feature an HD DVD-R optical drive and full 1080p playback resolution.

The technology of HD DVD provides Qosmio users with a new level of interactivity that will change how people watch movies. Features such as in-movie commentary and downloadable internet content will provide layers of valuable options that reach deeper into the moviemaking process, highlighting interesting details concerning real-life set locations, as well as high definition movie trailers and music videos.

A key benefit of using a notebook computer as a conduit for HD DVD playback is the standard 1 gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n wireless internet connections, which makes it possible to quickly and easily access internet content. New releases, such as Warner?s blockbuster "Blood Diamond," provide enhanced High Definition content that?s only available through the internet.

The Qosmio G45-AV680 sports a piano-key white glossy finish, which is starkly contrasted by a silver volume control knob and Qosmio AV Controller. Adding to the effect, each control knob is backlit by a halo of blue light. The Qosmio G45 comes with such high-end features as four Harman Kardon Bass Reflex stereo speakers, a built-in subwoofer, a 1 Bit Digital Amplifier and Dolby Home Theater technology. This high-end speaker configuration enhances the visual experience by delivering a sophisticated suite of audio technologies, such as Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Live, Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Headphone and Dolby Virtual Speaker.

Built around a 17-inch diagonal widescreen Ultimate TruBrite display, the Qosmio G45 delivers an image resolution of 1080p. While at home, users can connect the Qosmio?s HDMI port to a High Definition TV to expand the functionality of their home entertainment center. Additionally the Qosmio includes the TOSHIBA USB HDTV Tuner, an external device for viewing and recording live high definition TV from an antenna, satellite set-top box or cable line.

The Qosmio G45 will also satisfy gamers through NVIDIA?s GeForce 8600M GT GPU, which takes full advantage of Microsoft?s DirectX 10 graphics technology.

To maximize the functionality of the Qosmio and its HD DVD-R drive, the digital lifestyle application Ulead DVD MovieFactory for TOSHIBA has been included.
