Toshiba has chosen to bundle a program from Sonic Solutions, a supplier of DVD/CD creation software for professional, industrial, and consumer applications, with its entire line of PCs worldwide and to include the company’s DVD burning technolog in all of its Windows(R) XP Media Center Edition PCs.
The collaboration allows Toshiba to provide its users with CD and DVD burning technology that provides the ability to create music CDs, copy CDs and DVDs, share or protect photos, financial records, and other important data on optical media.
In addition, users of Toshiba's Media Center Edition PCs will reportedly be able to use Sonic PrimeTime, the DVD burning technology, to burn TV shows and other video content to DVDs that can be played back on any set-top and PC-based DVD players worldwide.
The Satellite P25-S670 Media Center PC (pictured) has an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with HT Technology, a 17.0-inch wide-screen XGA display, and Harman/Kardon speakers. The unit, with a DVD burner and TV tuner, has a suggested retail price of U.S. $2,699.
