(San Jose, California-AP) -- Bored with playing solitaire on your laptop?

Soon you'll be able to watch TV instead of doing your work.

Toshiba plans to announce a new laptop next week that allows users to watch TV without having to boot up the computer's Windows operating system.

The Qosmio model will be Toshiba's first laptop to fully integrate audio and video features. The company says it will include a bright, near TV-quality display, DVD drive, TV tuner and enhanced speakers.

While final pricing hasn't been announced, Toshiba says it will be in the $2,500 range when the laptop hits the market next month.
