PC Magazine reviewed Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV650 HD DVD laptop and concluded with good rating of 3 out of 5 that Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV650 is an outstanding Media Center laptop, not an outstanding HD DVD player. If you want the laptop, save yourself $600 and purchase the AV600. HD is better watched on a big-screen TV anyway, and better suited for a set-top box. The HD DVD drive and HDMI port will bring a lot of excitement to early adopters. For the rest of us, it might be wise to wait for the next version.
