ASUS M70 – the first terabyte laptop
After the Asus eee PC, here comes a notebook with a terabyte of storage. Asus M70 delivers a gigantic 1 terabyte of storage, now you don’t need to delete those video and pictures. Another feature this notebook have is a 17 inch monitor with WUXGA widescreen with 1920×1200 pixels resolution. This resolution could give a full HD resolution without scaling. It’s not only the video performance which is superb but it also have good audio quality because of the built-in Altec Lansing speakers and Dolby home theater. Blu ray is also supported.
Red Ray vs Blu Ray
After Blu ray has won it battle against the HD player, it seems that a new kid on the block is challenging it.
Although, Red ray player is not yet available ( it will be available in 2009) hype about the said format is now increasing. It is said that the format and player could give a 4k, 2k resolution almost double of that blu ray format.
So far there still no movie company that is releasing their movie in red ray format but the makers of red ray are trying to get the backing of Chinese industry to support the format in hopes that this will reverse or give a good fight against the blu ray.
So, let’s wait and see if red ray will be successful in the future.
The long battle has ended. Blu ray wins the format wars. After Warner Warner Brothers announces that it will stop supporting HD-DVD and will only release in Blu-ray, the down fall of HD-DVD was eminent. Netflix has also supported blu ray by phasing out support to HD-DVD. Best Buy recommends Blu ray disc in it’s store. And the final nail in the coffin is the announcement of Wal-Mart to only support Blu-ray by June 2008.
So, what’s into it for the Philippines? Don’t be surprise if you find muc cheaper HD-DVD player in the market and cheap HD-DVD disc. Don’t bother to buy them it is not worth it anymore.
