The 17.3in Toshiba Qosmio X770/00X is a massive 3D capable gaming notebook that still gives you a lot for its hefty $2,299 price. Although modern games won’t run at maximum settings in 3D on it, the laptop's powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M dedicated graphics card can still handle them at high settings when not doing 3D. The included Blu-ray burner means you can watch3D Blu-ray movies, so you get get a healthy dose of entertainment functionality on top of the strong gaming specs.
Get this laptop if you want something which can do everything a big desktop can, except is far less conspicuous. Well, maybe a little less conspicuous, given its garish burgundy brushed metal chassis.
The X770 features a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2630QM (2GHz), a high-end processor that is able to run intensive software and productivity applications easily. It can burst up to 2.9GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology if a particularly demanding program or task is running.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M is a high-end card that will easily run most modern games at high to ultra-high settings.
8GB of RAM is enough to deliver good system performance; good for gaming, and for multi-tasking of several programs fluidly.
The X770 features a large 750GB hard disk drive. This is plenty of room for a reasonably large movies and music collection. It also features a 500GB hybrid hard disk drive, which uses a small solid state drive in addition to a normal hard disk drive to boost performance.
It sports a 17.3in (1,920x1,080 resolution) gloss screen which is 3D-capable. You can watch 3D movies and play 3D games by using the accompanying 3D glasses.
It isn’t really very portable, because it weighs 3.4kg and is 43.9mm thick. This will likely live on a desk and only move around if absolutely necessary.
The X770 has a Blu-ray burner, which allows it to play Blu-ray movies or rip them to its storage.
