Site: I love Qosmio screens but as I said before, single format HD disc playing devices are going the way of the Dodo — if HD DVD doesn’t get there first. However, the value of these laptops is clear to anyone in a dorm room or small apt. This is basically a TV with a computer attached, which is good for everybody.
