Summary: Is the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q708 worth buying? That's the $4200 question. In light of its unimpressive screen resolution and odd keyboard, you'll have to provide your own keyboard, monitor, and mouse if you plan on having a serious gaming session at home. And though this desktop replacement has some of the most advanced hardware on the market, plus a class-leading sound system, you can get comparable gaming and multimedia performance for a fraction of the price from...
Excerpt: My son is starting High School this fall and was in need of his own computer. After shopping around my son decided on the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q701 laptop. One of the reasons why my son decided on this laptop was because of its appearance. The Qosmio X305-Q701 has a red lid that is covered with almost abstract, two-tone flames, and the center prominently features "Qosmio" in inch-tall silver letters.
Summary: Plus, the X305 offers three USB ports (one of which doubles as eSATA), a 5-in-1media reader, and an ExpressCard slot, along with Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. While the X305’s application performance is certainly commendable, its outrageous looks, lackluster gaming performance, and paltry battery life (one hour, eight minutes on power-saving mode) should consider its cons before making a purchase.
Pros: Beats dual-core rigs in multithreaded apps; 4.1 speakers rock.
Cons: Gaudy aesthetic; unimpressive gaming; piss-poor battery life.
Summary: Dropping $2,699 on a gaming machine is no laughing matter, but the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725 is one seriously powerful gaming rig with superb sound. Its audio punch alone nearly puts this machine in its own class.

Conclusion: Игровой ноутбук Toshiba Qosmio X305 проявил себя очень хорошо при тестировании, но высокая стоимость все же заставляет задуматься, а стоит ли он своих денег, в то время как ноутбуки подобные Gateway P-7811 FX продаются по более низкой цене. Габариты X305 обусловлены комплектацией и высокой производительностью, а, следовательно, потребностями в высокой теплоотдачи.
