Toshiba on Monday pushed high-definition technology into new laptops, expanding entertainment options for budget users.

The Satellite A205 and Qosmio F45 laptops provide HD DVD drives and entertainment options to more users at an affordable price. The company introduced HD DVD drives in Qosmio G35-AV650 laptops last year.

It runs the Windows Vista Home Premium OS and weighs around 6 pounds (2.7 kilograms).

This is the first Satellite with a 15.4-inch screen to have an HD DVD-ROM drive, said a spokesman from Toshiba's public relations firm.

Toshiba also announced the Qosmio F45-AV425 laptop, which includes an HD DVD drive, HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) ports to stream high-definition images to external devices and Harman Kardon stereo speakers with a built-in subwoofer. The US$1,649 laptop is powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 processor, with 2G bytes of memory, a 15.4-inch screen, 300G-byte hard drive, Nvidia Corp. GeForce 8600M GT graphics card, 802.11a/g/n wireless networking, webcam and fingerprint reader. It runs the Windows Vista Ultimate OS and weighs around 6.6 pounds.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
