We’ve already seen a few additions of the Intel Core 2 Duo Merom to Dell’s XPS line of laptops. We’ve also gotten a benchmark of the Merom performance that shows how much better it is over previous chips. Today we see the release of the Qosimo G35-AV660 from Toshibo.
The G35-AV660 features a 2Ghz processor with 4MB cache. It has two 120GB SATA drives that run at 5400rpm–I would have much rathered seen them at 7200rpm–and 2048MB DDR2 memory.
Toshiba has poised this to be a multimedia system and has included a built in TV tuner so that it can watch live TV and function as a DVR. It also has an HDMI port and supports 1080i. Another feature sure to get multimedia enthusiasts, is the included HD DVD drive. It is available now from ToshibaDirect for a less than affordable $3499.
