The deal: Toshiba Qosmio F750/02Y - decent price for a powerful entertainment notebook - $1,497.00
For $1,497 the 15.6in Toshiba Qosmio F750/02Y is reasonably priced in light of its very high-end specs. It has a huge 8GB of RAM and a fast 2nd Gen Intel Core i7 processor, which provide the computing power needed for some really intensive work. As with all true entertainment notebooks, the F750 has a TV tuner (enabling you to record and watch live TV) and a Blu-ray player. The screen isn’t Blu-ray resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) but there is an HDMI port that makes it really easy to connect the F750 to a full HD external screen. Probably the main fault with the F750 is that it weighs a whopping 2.8kg, meaning it’ll spend most of its time on a desk rather than travelling around with whoever buys it.
The F750 features a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2630QM (2GHz), a high-end processor that is able to run intensive software and productivity applications without any difficulty. It can burst up to 2.9GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology if a particularly demanding program is running.
The F750 comes with a dedicated graphics card: the NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M. It’s one of the better mid-range offerings from NVIDIA, and it will be able to handle most modern games at medium to high settings.
The F750 comes with 8GB of RAM, which is enough to either run many programs at once fluidly or run very intensive image and video editing software.
The F750 features a large 750GB hard disk drive. It’s big enough to store a fair amount of recorded TV from the TV tuner.
The F750 sports a 15.6in (1,366 x 768 resolution) gloss screen. The gloss screen does make outdoor usage a bit of a struggle, but stay out of direct sunlight and it’s still fine.
The F750 is less portable than the average notebook, because it weighs 2.8kg and is 34.8mm thick. Although it can be moved around, a decent notebook backpack should be considered.
The F750 has a Blu-ray player, which allows it to play Blu-ray movies. It also has a TV tuner, which makes it possible to watch live TV on the F750 and also to record live TV to the HDD storage.
