Want to see an impressive Laptop? Toshiba wipes the HD DVD egg of it’s face and blows a hole in your nearest gaming arena with the Satellite X205-SLI NotebooksSatellite X205-SLI Notebooks. Aside from the Core 2 Duo 2.1GHz T8100 45 nanometer processor, I’d like to direct your attention to the part of this Laptop’s name that spell S-L-I. This Toshiba Satellite comes running dual-GeForce 8600 GT graphics cards. How do you even fit two graphics cards in a laptop? Let’s find out.

Okay, don’t think for a moment that the Powers that Be around here trust me enough to let me open a Toshiba Satellite gaming PC. At least not one that hasn’t been purchased yet. By me. And paid for in full. But what we can learn about this PC from the outside is enough: it’s build for multimedia and games. Mostly games. But also multimedia. And those GPUs I mentioned? They’ve got 512MB of DDR3 discrete memory and up to 256MB of shared memory. That’s enough to play some of the toughest games out there.

We’ll bet Toshiba cast the molds for a PC like this before, um, last week. This is why the Toshiba Satellite X205-Sli4 has an HD DVD Optical Drive. Who knew that the ‘other guy” in the High Definition Format Wars would be dead before April? Not I. I was actually rooting for Toshiba’s HD DVD, but what can you do? (Buy a Blu-Ray fast before Sony realizes they’ve got a monopoly in the industry, for one thing.) But there’s plenty of other great parts included too: From the integrated webcam to the full-sized number pad on the keyboard to the Fingerprint reader, for Pete’s sake.

This particular incarnation of the X205-Sli4 comes with 3GB of PC2-5300 DDR2 memory. This is enough to turn your laptop into a multimedia monster. Toshiba backs this up by putting an HDMI output on the side, along with your typical goodies like S-Video, USB and FireWire ports. This means you can play your HD DVD (or just plain old HD) content on a big, fancy HD flat panel display or TV. Or you could just watch it on the 17-inch 1680×1050 resolution LCD screen. And as for audio, forget about it: Integrated Harman Kardon speakers will keep you knee deep in the action, whether it’s a movie or your favorite game.

There’s also all kinds of ways to take your digital files and films with you without taking the X205-Sli4 with you, and the notebook supports them all. With a flash media reader and 802.11n-integrated wireless, you’ve got more options for connectivity and storage than before. And with an operating system like Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, you’ll browse through your files with ease. If you’re in the market for a really, really awesome Notebook PC, consider the Toshiba Satellite X205-Sli4.
