...but not in a PowerBook. Toshiba will be shipping its new Satellite 5200 Series this week complete with a 15" UXGA (that's 1600x1200 pixels) screen, a 60GB HD, 512MB RAM, nVidia GeForce 4 Go 460 64MB Graphics, a 2.0 GHz P4, USB2 and FireWire.

This could spell trouble for Apple, especially if their plans are indeed to wait for a slot loading version of the drive to put in the PowerBook. Combo Drives were in the iBook before the TiBook over this little design issue of Apple's.

Here is an article from C|Net, talking a little more about the whole situation, as well as the competing standards of DVD-R and DVD+R.
