Toshiba Qosmio F40W

On a more positive note than its SED delay, Toshiba on Friday unveiled a smaller version of its Qosmio media center notebook made primarily with Japan in mind. The F40W trims down the flagship G45 coming to the US by shrinking the display to a more manageable 15.4 inches and also adopting a more modest 128MB GeForce 8400M GS that still provides full speed for Vista and 1080p video decoding. Some features remain the same, according to Toshiba: a 2GHz Santa Rosa-era Core 2 Duo with an 800MHz bus, 2GB of RAM, and HDMI output for TVs. A 120GB hard drive and a DVD burner are standard.

Orders will be taken for the F40W in Japan starting today at a price of $2,140, with shipments expected to start on June 1st. While limited to Toshiba's home country, the new Qosmio is a likely reference for future American models, which may change and become part of the Satellite line within the US. [via Impress]
