Toshiba Qosmio G30-204 review


A well-featured machine, but starting to show its age

HD-DVD, CPU and graphics card, clear screen, Harmon Kardon speakers


As a notebook, media player or desktop replacement this machine will do a good job. If you're hoping to watch high definition media there are few other options. Although there's a hefty price tag, it only reflects the stacks of hardware put together in...
