Toshiba recently announced the Qosmio F25-AV205, an affordable "four-in-one" digital entertainment notebook with a new attractive design and upgraded features. It's scheduled to be available in July 2005 for $1,999, with a 15.4-inch diagonal widescreen TruBrite display, Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and integrated TV tuner, digital video recorder (DVR), read/write DVD/CD player, virtual surround-sound stereo and all the capabilities of a powerful, full-featured notebook PC.

Starting under eight pounds, Qosmio F25-AV205 features a new digital convergence design, including a sleek black finish, large volume dial that can be accessed when the unit is closed, stylized edging and black control buttons.

Upgraded features inside include a 100 GB 5400 rpm hard drive, 1024 MB DDR2 memory, NVIDIA GeForce 6 GO 6600 graphics accelerator with 64 MB DDR SDRAM, and a fixed DVD SuperMulti Double Layer drive compatible with current DVD formats. The optical drive can nearly double storage capacity in DVD+R format.

"The Qosmio F25-AV205 offers all the quality and `four-in-one' AV functionality associated with the Qosmio line at an extremely reasonable price," said Taro Hiyama, vice president of marketing for Toshiba's Digital Products Division.
