re: Toshiba Qosmio X500 - The Gaming Portable Laptop

A look on the new Laptop :

Desktop Replacer
- It is one of the largest notebooks we recently have had on the bench. The high weight and sharp screen make it a true desktop replacement. A notebook that remains essentially the same place and not really made for a life in the backpack. It seems more made for at most occasionally on path for a LAN party and more particularly to take up less space than a desktop PC. The Qosmio is performed in a black casing with metallic red accents. Chic and less conspicuous than the previous model, the X300. That model was not to be missed by the bright red color and distinctive markings on the hood.



On paper this Toshiba interesting. Like the BTO and the HP Pavilion dv7-3090ed we recently suggested to you is this flagship of Toshiba Core i7 equipped with an Intel chip. It is again the i7-720QM, combined with the mobile version of the Intel P55 chipset. One of the main differences with earlier mobile chipsets from Intel is that this chipset has only one chip, which links to the various components on the motherboard controls. The processor is the P55 chipset which is directly connected to the memory and PCI Express interface used by the video card. These changes include the memory access of the mobile Core i7 much faster than you used mobile Core 2 processors from Intel.

That translates into good performance. Furthermore, the mobile Core i7 desktop just like his brother equipped with Hyper Threading, so the operating system expects to have eight processors, and the processor has a Turbo mode. When only one core of the processor is taxed, then the remaining three cradled in sleep and the increased speed of the one core. The Core i7 720QM standard works on 1.6 GHz, but with Turbo mode turned on as many as 2.8 GHz. Especially with games and applications that primarily use a processor that delivers very good performance.



If we configure the Qosmio X500 further view is that two hard drives are built, each with a capacity of 500 GB. A total of 1 TB storage capacity. They work on 5400 rpm and from their own works of that mark. The memory consists of two DDR3-1066 modules of 4 GB each. A total of 8 GB memory, for a notebook and a lot of reasons that this notebook is not very cheap. 4 GB DDR3 modules are still the pretty expensive. And if we are to believe Dutch BTO notebook maker such modules are also available again difficult. Especially for those who use a notebook is that large memory intensive very attractive.

The graphics chip is an nVidia GeForce GTS250. This chip has 96 "processor cores" as Nvidia calls it and uses a 128 bit memory interface to the 1 GB memory. The graphics processor is connected to a 18.4 inch screen with a resolution of 1920x1080. That makes it a perfect notebook for Toshiba to gaming, working and enjoying movies. Besides movies from the hard drive you can enjoy movies on Blu-ray. The Toshiba comes including Blu-ray version of WinDVD to play movies, and the package DVD MovieFactory 7 to make movies himself. To play DVDs, Toshiba is half program. That is the DVD player that has a private (Resolution +) who ensures that your old DVDs a little better on the screen.



Multimedia Support :
Of course you can connect the notebook to your TV via HDMI. Remarkably, the terminal is equipped with HDMI CEC. If the notebook you can then connect via HDMI the commands of the understanding of the television. For when you Qosmio as Blu-ray player. You can even Media Center through your TV's remote control. You can also use your TV's remote turn the notebook. While HDMI-CEC standard, there are divergent interpretations among the manufacturers of the standard. This would be that it does not work with your television.

Of course it promises that with the Toshiba Regza LCD TVs from Toshiba, bearing-Regza Link (HDMI-CEC).
Besides this connection, this laptop naturally enough vast expansion. Firewire, 802.11n, ExpressCard 54, eSATA, VGA and USB are standard four times. Only a DisplayPort connector is missing, but that is planned for a future version. The position has been kept free for. Bluetooth, 802.11n and Gigabit Ethernet are also built. The keyboard is extended and provided with a numeric field. On the left there is a special panel affixed to the multimedia capabilities of the laptop to operate. The speaker has worked with Toshiba brand Harman Kardon audio. The sound is reasonable, but a separate set of speakers is an option that we strongly to recommend.
