We really wish it was a US price and launch date they were announcing, but Toshiba looks locked and loaded to loose the Qosmio G30 on the UK some time in April for the princely sum of 2,300 (~$4,000 US). We know this thing packs in some sweet features (most notably, of course, its HD DVD drive, as well as a 2GHz Core Duo processor, 17-inch 1920 x 1200 display, dual 120GB RAID drives, DVB-T tuner, TV tuner, etc.), but damned is that a bank breaker for the back breaker. Guess having every single possible feature you can possibly imagine in a single laptop (no word on HDCP-output, however) comes at a cost.
