Summary: With the Qosmio X505-Q890, Toshiba has really upped the ante on what was already an industry leading gaming notebook. That said, competitors have also stepped up their game in this price and size range. If you're looking for something a little more portable (relatively speaking), the 17-inch ASUS G73JH ($1,599; $1,699 with Blu-ray) pairs dual 7,200-rpm drives with a slightly slower 1.6-GHz Intel Core i7-720QM CPU, but a slightly faster ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870...
Pros: Blazing fast performance, Fast SSD hard drive, Gorgeous HD screen, Great webcam quality
Conclusion: The Toshiba Qosmio X505 is among the largest notebooks at 18.4” and 9.7 lbs., and the CPU and graphics updates make it a powerful everyday desktop replacement and a darned good gaming machine. The Core i5 is cheaper with only the DVD drive option, but the video and gaming performance is quite good relative to the more expensive Core i7 models.

The harman/kardon and Dolby Home Theater combination produces one of the best audio experiences on a notebook., Pro: Gaming and video performance is great. The harman/kardon and Dolby Home Theater combination produces one of the best audio experiences on a notebook.
Cons: Keyboard is a bit too flat. HD 1920 x 1080 display is a very pricey upgrade, viewing angle poor on lower res display., Con: Keyboard is a bit too flat. Upgrading to an HD 1080 display costs big bucks and the lower res display has poor viewing angles.
Excerpt: I've always felt that Home Theater PCs have long been ignored as a viable alternative to physical media players in the home entertainment space, mostly because taking that next step into streaming or storing all your media in a central location seems very daunting to the average consumer; both from a technical and time consuming standpoint. It's very refreshing to see the barrage of media player / HTPC hybrids that are taking the home theater by storm as of late.
Excerpt: The new Qosmio X5050 is clearly leaps ahead of the previously launched X305. The X305 has been discontinued and Toshiba was left without a specialized gaming platform. Design wise, Toshiba thankfully dumped the stripes for some subtle gray crosshatch with metallic red accents. Something that bothered me was the system was glossy. That included the keyboard too. It kept on picking up fingerprints, smears and smudges.
Excerpt: Toshiba returns with its Qosmio series of gaming laptops. Stripped of its stripes and tribal designs, the X505 still is a devil. In the days when Alienware is being challenged for it’s pennies, Toshiba steps in with a killer machine to draw some blood. A really well designed system, with to of the line configuration and components. A huge 18 inch screen; for those who want their gaming to be a parallel reality. A lightning fast Intel core i7 CPU.
