The Toshiba Satellite P25-S507 joins the trend towards "convergence machines" by adding a TV tuner, 17" display, high-end audio system and DVD recording functionality to its capabilities as a desktop replacement mobile PC.

Integrated Wireless Internet access (IEEE 802.11a/b), 4-USB (2.0) ports and a 60GB HDD are among the notable computing features of the P25, but the focus is on the multimedia and personal theatre experience on offer - 1440 x 900 XGA Display, harman/kardon stereo speakers, NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 graphics and DVD-R/RW multifunction drive. TV viewing and recording features include the ability to use the unit as a set top box.

The Toshiba Satellite P25-S507 is available in the States for US$2,099 and the high-end P25-S607 model costs US$2,699. Toshiba are considering a local release but features specifications have not been finalised.
