Toshiba has announced it will launch the first notebook PC integrating a slim-type HD DVD-ROM drive in the beginning of 2006, initially in Japan.

The slim-type HD DVD-ROM drive, with a height of only 12.7 millimeters, takes full advantage of the physical structure of HD DVD discs to realize a pick-up head with a single optical lens that can read HD DVD discs and read and write to standard DVD and CD. This size advantage also supported Toshiba in bringing high definition capabilities to the go-anywhere small form factor of the notebook PC.

Toshiba has assured that users can enjoy a mobile, high definition environment to the full by equipping the new PC with a high resolution LCD display.
