Until a few days ago, I didn't even consider Dolby for this machine... it was only after having heard about the Toshiba that I started wondering...
So yeah, it seems like a nice machine in any case... Difficult to get perfection.

I dont really need any that fancy stuff on my comp. What I would like is
a high quality audio out (something else than the typical headphone jack).
Well yes, the fees must probably be pretty expensive. Still, the M2010 and at least two other laptops probably will have this included, so it shouldn't be impossible.
I am also only after a high-quality audio out. That's why I want to use the S/PDIF connector. Problem is I'll only get stereo sound from games using these chips... We need DDLive to get 5.1 sound over S/PDIF from games...
