Toshiba may still actually make both HD DVD standalone players available, but they no longer have the laptop market to themselves and "firm Blu-ray supporters" LG (thanks for the reminder Zach). (. Acer's Aspire 9800 laptop started shipping today, coming with a 20.1-inch screen, Core Duo processor, NVIDIA GeForce Go-powered graphics and of course the HD DVD drive (no recording here yet). If the 1680x1050 resolution laptop screen isn't enough there is an HDMI output, future-proofing against ICT-enabled discs of the future. All this starts at $2799 and isn't bad, but our most pressing question is if print screen still works.
