On The Move Media Center with Toshiba

By: Shawn Baker | Editorials in HT & Movies | Posted: Mar 26, 2008 4:00 am

The Specs


As far as main specs go we have an Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 clocked at 2.2GHz which carries with it 4MB of Cache and an 800MHz front side bus. We get 2GB of DDR2 667MHz memory in the form of two single 1GB modules, with the ability to upgrade to 4GB. The Chipset of choice is the Intel 965PM, and we have a discreet graphics card in the form of the 8600M GT implemented which has 512MB of memory, but it can pull a further 256MB from system RAM.



Features that make it a bit more media center orientated would include the two 200GB hard disk drives, giving us a grand total of 400GB. We also have a DVB-T Twin digital TV tuner supporting both HD and analogue TV.



Where it begins to get really cool though is with the inclusion of the five speaker harman/kardon setup, Intel HD Audio and a HD-DVD player built in. While we understand that HD-DVD has lost the format war, if you managed to pick up some bargains in the HD-DVD department then you might find yourself with over 50 HD-DVDs and no real time to watch them.


Thanks to the 1920 x 1200 17" widescreen display we're able to get full 1080P playback in the comfort of everywhere, from the bedroom to the plane.



What's so cool though is that if you find yourself at a mates' place who has a nice 1080P TV you can plug a HDMI cable from the notebook into the TV and enjoy those same movies on 40", 50" and bigger screens.

You'll see we have the normal features like VGA Out, USB, Network, S-Video, Wireless, Bluetooth and so much more.
