Toshiba Qosmio TV Laptop

Toshiba plans to announce a new laptop model next week that allows users to watch TV on it without having to boot up the computer’s Windows operating system. Called Qosmio, it will be Toshiba’s first laptop to fully integrate audio and video features, including a bright, near TV-quality display, DVD drive, TV tuner, and enhanced speakers. A user could click on the TV with the laptop’s remote control or watch a DVD movie without having to go through the all-too-familiar process of starting the accompanying Windows Media Center operating system. If users want to pause live TV or record TV shows onto the 80-gigabyte hard disk, however, they’ll need to do so with the Windows software. A 15-inch model will be available in August. The price has yet to be determined but will likely be between $ 2,499 and $ 2,599. Wide-screen models are planned for later.
