Summary: The SSD C drive makes for fast boot and response times and there is loads of disk space including a 500Gb 7200 rpm drive, plus a 1.5 terabyte 5400 rpm drive. Look is a tad old fashioned but the performance is great. However, be warned: the included blu-ray burner has NO software that can be used to burn CDs or DVDs. You have to buy something like Nero that will actually allow you to use the drive.
Pros: fast lots of disk space 16gb of ram
Cons: initial delivery was missing the 500gb drive took 3 weeks to get a replacement laptop no cd / dvd burning software
Summary: This product is delightful to look at unfortunately I should have researched a little more thoroughly. After questioning Toshiba I have been told that this unit has been designed for Windows 8 only and although it will run under Windows 7 not all capabilities of this laptop will function. Had I known that I would have purchased something else. Making this computer less backwards compatible is a step backward indeed and limits its usefulness for my needs.
Pros: looks good functions well within its limitations
Summary: I received my Qosmio yesterday. It's excellent performance is what I was looking for. No disappointment for performance, style. It's definitely heavy enough for me to think twice to use during travel. Like others mentioned, it does seems to have a bit of heating issue. But you won't notice it unless you have it in your "lap" and hence it's not a "laptop" friendly device.
Summary: Pros: Best deal you'll find as a laptop powerful and fast you can play anygame you want on Ultra. I run BF3 on the best settings with no problem HUGE screen 4 USB ports, two on each side awesome in-built speakers cons: shitty webcam this battery will last you 1hr 45min if you do your best to preserve it (power saver, low screen brightness, wireless off). This eliminates the point of a laptop. Build your own gaming PC with the same stats for 40% less.
