Total multimedia mobility has just ended with the release of a new Toshiba laptop top that has almost all types of entertainment technology that you can think of. A ten-point six-pound giant with a seventeen-inch wide screen with a 16: 9 aspect ratio and the resolution of this high-definition television have access to various forms of entertainment and can be channeled to other devices via an HDMI cable connection.
What really distinguishes the Qosmio G30 from other modern laptop computers is the fact that it comes with a built-in HD-DVD burner. That means you can not only watch HD-DVD discs on this computer – and on any HDTV device connected to an outlet – but you can also burn your own discs. This can be a real advantage for any home-based movie enthusiast who wants a family vacation enshrined in the clarity of an incredible HDTV. The HD-DVD burner is also great for archiving data with HD-DVD capabilities to store up to fifteen gigabytes on each side of the disc for a total information storage capacity of up to thirty gigabytes! That’s a lot of videos, music and digital photos.
Of course, like everything else with HD-DVD drives, there are serious questions about whether the Qosmio G30 will soon be outdated or not, in fact it turns out to be a loser in the format war between the HD-DVD format and Sony Blu-ray disc format. Both formats are designed to play High Definition movies from optical discs of the same size as standard CDs or DVDs, but the format will not be played in other format players. It was generally agreed that only one format could survive the war. While HD-DVD has benefited so far from superior marketing and business decisions, the Blu-ray format is a serious threat with its ability to store twenty gigabytes of data per disk more than HD-DVD.
All that has been said, the Qosmio G30 is an impressive computer in itself. It has a dual processor that runs at two gigahertz each, two hard drives with a capacity of one hundred sixty gigabytes each, one gigabyte of RAM, and a graphics card with two hundred fifty six gigabytes of RAM. The Qosmio G30 also has an incredible level of connectivity both with other computer devices and multimedia devices. For example, it has a PCMCIA slot, multi-card reader, and connectivity for ExpressCard / 54. It is also fully connected so that it has both USB 2.0 and Firewire ports. It can bind to the network using Ethernet, several versions of wireless technology, and even old modems.
One really impressive thing about the Qosmio G30 and shows that it is adapted for entertainment, is the fact that it has analog and digital TV tuners. It really complements the capabilities of this particular laptop: it can do all the things that other laptops can do, but it can also be used to burn high-definition videos to disk and even watch terrestrial TV.
