After seeing my first Windows Media Center laptop (which features tv recording, movie, photo, and music playback and management), I wasn't impressed due to the form factor, but comments indicated that I was thinking too tivo-centric and portable PVRs have their uses.
Today Toshiba announced their new Windows Media Center notebook, and although I've seen the light on portable WMC machines, on this model I have to question the portability factor. It's based on their P25 17" widescreen system (copycat to Apple's 17" x-large pizza box?) which I've played with before. A couple things struck me about the P25 when I tested it: it's gigantic for a laptop, feeling even bigger than the powerbook, and it weighs a ton. About 10 pounds to be exact. At some point, these "portables" are going to feel more and more like lugging a desktop around. [via gizmodo]
