Bring on the competition and let the prices drop!!
Toshiba announced a slimline HD DVD burner for laptops (shown on the left) with a writing capacity of 15GB+
(I'm not sure what the plus is for, and I'm to lazy to look it up today. I might update the post at a later date.)
I also found this report on Engadget about the Hitachi GGW-H20N (shown on the right). This internal Blu-ray writing / HD DVD reading combo drive looks to have the same features as this LG drive. Actually, it might be a bit better because it can burn 50GB dual-layer Blu-ray discs, along with BD-R, BD-RW, and the typical flavors of writable DVDs and CDs.
