Toshiba unveils its first 16:9 laptop

You might think with pretty much all laptops out there now being widescreen that they'd offer a spot-on movie watching experience - and while they're great, you'll still be battling against those pesky black lines on the top and bottom of the screen. That's because the majority of screens actually have a ratio of 16:10, rather than the 16:9 that widescreen content tends to be in.

With the arrival of Toshiba's Satellite A350 it's all change though - with its 16" screen letting you enjoy your videos in their full 16:9 glory. It's also got a pair of rather tasty Harmon Kardon speakers to complement the movie-watching.

It's a powerful little blighter too, with 4GB of ram and a fast processor - and some models feature HDMI letting you hook it up to your big TV for real cinema-style goodness.

It's available now, and isn't too bad on the pocket either.
