World's first HD-DVD laptop

Toshiba recently announced that it will unveil the world's first laptop with an HD-DVD drive (and accompanying high-resolution display) at the CEATEC Japan electronics show next week. Imagine it: next time you visit your hippie cousins who don't have a TV, you can bring your high-def theater with you.

Better brush up on those Peter, Paul, and Mary lyrics, though: The laptop won't be available until early 2006, and even then (at least initially) only in Japan.
