Summary: With a starting price of £1,699, the x70 is staggeringly expensive, plus you'll need a forklift truck to get it out of the house. Of course, that’s the price you pay for monster specs. But considering a powerful desktop PC would cost you less, you do have to wonder who this is aimed at.
Summary: The Hulk of gaming. Toshiba has now introduced its latest offspring from the Qosmio series. It is a device of superlatives. Powerful processor, masses of RAM, vast storage capacity, speedy graphics and a large Full HD screen. That sounds tempting but can this behemoth deliver what it promises?
Pros: Strong performance bundle, Bright screen with decent contrast, Spacious storage, Swift SSD drive, Blu Ray burner, Good sound, Decent input devices, The components are strong and have lush peripherals that barely leave anything to be wanted.
Cons: Sensitive high-gloss components, Cooling system too weak, Poor fan management, Adversely placed fans, GTX 770M throttles during permanent load, Streaks (high response time), A decently working fan management and a generally more effective cooling system would be appreciated.
Summary: The basics This laptop is built for gaming. It packs a 17.3-inch Full HD screen, beefy Nvidia graphics card, and Harmon Kardon speakers that put you right in the middle of the action.
Pros: Performance is off-the-chart good, with everything running liquid smooth on this beast, and superb graphics. After using this, you'll struggle to go back to your Xbox 360 or PS3, as it shows just how far behind the times they are. That could change when the PS4 and Xbox One touch down, of course,...
Cons: The display isn't a touchscreen. Seeing as Windows 8 is optimised for touchscreens, that seems a bit of an oversight. You'd be forgiven if - as we did - you tried to paw the screen a couple of times expecting it to respond. Gaming laptop still seems like a contradiction in terms, even in 2013. Th...
Summary: A gaming laptop that makes a loud first impression
Pros: Great gaming power, Good processor, Fast SSD, Bright screen, Blu-ray, The GeForce GTX 770M graphics core has enough power to run the most demanding games without big quality drops, and it's accompanied by a powerful quad-core processor. The screen makes a great first impression, too, thanks to su...
Cons: Awful battery life, Garish design, Mixed build quality, Mediocre speakers, High price, The Qosmio's unique sense of style won't suit everyone – rivals such as the MSI GS70 Stealth are much more demure. The divisive looks also come with a bloated design: the Qosmio's 3.4kg weight and 44mm-thick ch...
Summary: So can Toshiba make Gaming laptops then? The answer is a resounding yes! I have really enjoyed my time with the Toshiba Qosmio X70-A-10W Gaming Laptop , far more than I thought I would have done.
Excerpt: Inte nog kraftfull. Toshibas multimediamaskin Qosmio X70 kostar ca 12 000 kr. För de pengarna får du mycket processorkraft, men grafikkortet räcker inte till för spel och SSD-lagring hade också varit önskvärt.
