Toshiba was the first to get back to me about what it is expecting to do with its HD-DVD laptops. I guess their people had the most time to think about the answers. Either way, here is Toshiba’s response to our questions. Is Toshiba planning on discontinuing HD-DVD drives in its laptops? Yes. When will Toshiba stop selling computers with HD drives? No confirmed date yet. And switch to Blu-Ray? Toshiba will explore alternative HD options for its customers.
