The Qosmio G35-AV650 adds a new model to Toshiba’s Qosmio family of notebooks, one that can play high-definition movies on a 17-inch display with a resolution of 1,920 pixels by 1,200 pixels. HD DVD movies are trickling out slowly, but there are several titles available, and around 200 are expected by the end of the year, said Dave McFarland, product manager for the Qosmio line.
I’d barely call this a notebook. Two 100GB drives setup as RAID. It weighs *10.1* pounds! And it costs $2,999. This is a very-high-end desknote range notebook. Not the kind of thing you want to carry around too much. My HP zv5000 weighs around 8 pounds, and I feel it when I travel. I only got one this big because I knew 99% of the time it would be sitting on a table by my couch (as it is now), or sitting on a table in a hotel somewhere, etc. I don’t actually carry it around much – just between places when I travel. Damn that Toshiba is a fat laptop.
