    Toshiba looks set to become to first manufacturer to sell notebooks with the ability to write HD DVD disks later this week with the introduction of its new Qosmio Series 2. The notebooks will be available in 15.4” and 17” versions, with resolutions of 1280x800 and 1920x1200 respectively, and both models will be equipped with a HD DVD-RW drive, twin TV tuners and 2GB of memory. The 15.4” model uses a 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo T7250 processor and is expected to sell for around $2,600, whilst the 17” model has a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo T7500 processor and is expected to be priced at about $3,500. The notebooks should launch this Friday.

    Not necessarily they will usually use a good graphics chipset so that the movies will look and play better on those resolutions (especially the 1920 by 1200 resolution monitor)
