I love the media center; there's nothing better than kicking back in the lounge and watching a movie on the big TV. Setting up a good media center isn't cheap though, and it's not exactly a 5 minute task either.


Toshiba has released a line of notebooks under the Qosmio naming scheme. I don't know exactly how you would go about asking your local retailer for the particular model as I have enough trouble typing the name, let alone saying it. The thing about this series of notebooks is that they're aimed at people who are interested in not only a large desktop replacement notebook, but also something that offers some pretty cool multimedia specs.


The model of choice today is the G40. Now, you're sitting down aren't you? If not then please plop into that seat now. Why? The price. At $5,000, it isn't cheap. It's actually a bit scarey, but you have to wonder, can you put a price on pure sexiness?


The thing is, while a lot of people aren't going to be able to justify the price, if you're looking for something that offers that next-generation notebook experience then the chances are we've found what you're looking for.


While Toshiba market the notebook under the "home office" section of their website, it's so much more than that. It's a complete and utter portable media center, and a damn good one at that. Allow us to give you a full tour of this baby and show you what's so special about it.
