Taking it to the Lounge Room
With the built in HDMI adapter, if you have yourself a HDMI AMP or display you can really get up and running in minutes to enjoy some Hi-Def goodness on your TV. All you have to do is plug the HDMI cable in and hit the function key, then switch the display button.
From here you have a choice to clone your desktop, expand it or use the external display as your only one. We chose the latter, and within a second we had our desktop display pop up on our 1080P projector.
With Shrek 3 HD-DVD in hand, it was time to chuck it into the HD-DVD drive and let PowerDVD fire up and do its thing.
A few minutes ago we were watching HD-DVDs on our Full HD 1080P notebook display, and now we're kicking back and enjoying Shrek 3 on our 100" Full HD 1080P projector.
There's some real versatility with the G40, but unless you have the right devices in the house or just feel the advantage of 1080P movies against DVD, then some people simply won't be able to make full use of the notebook.
