Toshiba Computer Systems Group has announced an expansion of its HD DVD notebook line-up available from a new affordable price. Consumers can now choose from four generously specified notebooks, namely the Toshiba Qosmio G40, Satellite X200, Satellite P200 and Satellite A200.
These four notebooks cater for a diverse range of users from business professionals to gamers and home users who are serious about how they view and manage their multimedia content.
All of these HD DVD enabled notebooks feature high-definition widescreen displays with resolutions of either 720p or 1080p and sizes ranging from 15,4 inches to 17 inches.
The HD DVD format provides viewers with a visual experience that surpasses the DVD standard in both resolution and sound quality. HD DVDs offer up to five times the image resolution of standard definition DVD as well as amazing surround and lossless audio (with suitable equipment).
“HD DVD is the future of the high-definition lifestyle and we’re excited about broadening access to the HD DVD experience through our range of affordable HD DVD notebooks,” says Reon Coetzee, marketing manager of Toshiba SA.
“As the popularity of HD DVD continues to grow, Toshiba recognises the importance of providing consumers with the means to enjoy all the benefits of this format wherever they may be. Our extensive range of HD DVD notebooks allows them to do just that at a price they can afford.”
The Qosmio G40 and Satellite X200 come equipped with Dolby Home Theater technology, which places the user in the middle of the onscreen action for an engaging surround sound experience from a variety of audio outputs, such as stereo, multi-channel audio sources, headphones, 2-channel or 5.1-channel speaker systems and built-in Harman Kardon Bass Reflex stereo speakers with a subwoofer.
The Satellite P200 and Satellite A200 notebooks harness the power of Dolby Sound Room Technology, which delivers a virtual surround sound experience from stereo speakers or any pair of headphones.
