Toshiba Announces New Satellite A205 Series Laptop

Toshiba has announced its latest Satellite A205 notebook with select models featuring cutting-edge HD DVD playback functionality. Toshiba's Satellite A205 series provides users with a blend of power and performance, and has now ventured into the realm of high-definition. The Satellite A205-S7468 is equipped with an HD DVD optical drive, which allows users to enjoy stunning HD movies on the laptop's 720p high-definition 15.4-inch diagonal widescreen TruBrite display. Toshiba's patented TruBrite technology further helps provide enhanced high-definition picture quality and rich color saturation.

The HD DVD format provides viewers with a visual experience that's beyond the current DVD standard. Today's DVD format has a maximum playback resolution of 480p, while HD DVDs offer an image resolution that is up to six times sharper. HD DVDs provide a viewing experience with brighter colors, enhanced details and greater overall image sharpness.

For a limited time, with the purchase of select HD DVD-enabled Toshiba Satellite A205 notebooks, consumers will qualify to receive five HD DVD titles for free, from a selection of 15 popular titles, via a mail-in offer. Complete offer details are available atthis page, and is valid until February 28, 2008.
