I've used a lot of notebooks over my time, but I've always had a bit of a sweet spot for Toshiba. The only problem is that their quality does come at a price, and generally speaking they're one of the more expensive notebooks on the market.
Some people simply aren't going to need the features that the G40 offers. Toshiba have a number of other notebooks in their line-up that cover big resolutions, fast processors and loads of hard drive space without all the extra multimedia goodies such as the HD-DVD drive and built-in tuner.
What will be interesting is to see how much longer we see Toshiba release notebooks with the HD-DVD drive built inside, because while the format may no longer be in full swing there are a number of people out there who have a stack of movies and are just itching for the chance to really watch them.
You could quickly become very used to having the G40 on your desktop, but ultimately the high price tag puts it out of reach for most people. Toshiba continue to make some of the coolest notebooks on the market, but as always only a certain clientele are going to be able to justify the high costs that some of the top end models carry.
