Toshiba Prepping High-Def Qosmio with HD DVD Burner

Today's second leak of the day comes from France, where images of a new Toshiba laptop have been spotted. One of the cool things about the Qosmio G40 will be its high-def capabilities. It'll be one of the very few laptops with an HD DVD-R burner.

And what good is an HD optical drive if you can't output it to your HDTV, which the G40 will let you do via its HDMI 1.3 output. As for gamers, the Media Center laptop will pack a 512MB GeForce 8600 GT card. It's expected to hit Europe and the U.S. this June for just under $3K.
