Second generation cpu make this worth while. Awesome product. Love it!
15 February 2014
Summary: This model of this laptop is a fantastic unit for anyone that needs a fast machine from everyday computing to 85% of the most modern games. This is because that only this particular model and the two above it...x505-q8102x, x505-q8104x and the x500-q930x are second generation Intel cpu compatible. This make it a very close contender to the newer Intel Ivy Bridge and Haswell cpu's. This unit will give any newer model a run for it's money.
Summary: I have very little to say here. I read some of the low ratings and that compelled me to share my experience. So, I'm a gamer and I have not had any problems with the computer over heating. The power pack does get hot and it is a large computer and that's to be expected. Also, my computer is as fast as my internet speed! At first my computer seemed slow but I upped my internet service and WOW! There isn't any problems with computer.
An amazing desktop replacement, great for both gaming and development.

Summary: Overall, this is an excellent laptop- if you use it as a desktop replacement, the huge screen size is wonderful. The keyboard is sharp and strikes a perfect balance between feedback and form factor, the trackpad is responsive and feels nice, and although it may seem small, it never feels as though it should be bigger. The specs are wonderful, and so far multitasking with copious amounts of applications has been a breeze.
Summary: I was a very good value and has worked as expected I purchased this to replace a 18.4 P500 Toshiba that failed. The Qosmio X505 is a step up from my last lap top it is faster has larger hard drive. The battery and other parts are interchangeable from the P500 which helped.

Excerpt: To start off this review, I think that it is best to start off by saying that i work in store that only sells and services computers. Now you should keep in mind that this store does sell and service mulptiple makes and models of both desktops and laptops, so my opinion is not incredibly bias as some may assume. Anyway, that being said the Toshiba Qosmio X505-896 Q4 is was the computer that is chose for myself.
Excerpt: We bought my sister one of these. She loves it, it does everything she needs, she is an avid student and has some serious courses. she does everything with it and goes hardly anywhere without it. she entertains usign it and uses it with her hd flat screen tv. awesome product.

Excerpt: This laptop looks like a wonderful product to enjoy. I believe that this laptop out of many should be purchased. The screen is wide in lenght and width,its compact,has a lit keyboard, and an overall great system. Its also a powerful system.
Excerpt: well there are really good toshiba laptops in markets and this one is just something that you can easily find with other companies too. i was not much impresed with it due to the fact of its processing speed. there are many more possible palces that needs to be corrected in this lap top. the processor needs to be bumped up. it needs to be more fast and efficient. running multiple applications really pulls the sped down for this laptop.
