Toshiba Qosmio X305 Gaming Laptop Review – G4tv.com

toshiba-qosmio-x305It’s not often that a gaming laptop gets even close to the power of a desktop, but Toshiba is not one to heed. They have stuffed their new Qosmio with dual Nvidia SLI video cards, an Intel dual core processor, 4 gigs of RAM and more.

What You Need to Know

  • The exhaust on the back is huge, so airflow is steady
  • It’s also actually a little lighter (at 9lbs.) than the Toshiba G55 laptop we reviewed recently
  • Even though it’s ridiculous, we kind of like the crazy red paint job
  • Since the trackpad is so thick and the keyboard is so far in, you might cramp your wrist gaming
  • You also constantly have your wrist over one of the speakers
  • We do like the click of the keys, and the lights and red interior are very cool
  • It has three video cards
  • We ran our 3DMark Vantage Tests and they actually came out a little lacking
  • Toshiba has put in two 9800M GTS video cards, and one 9400M Integrated GPU on the motherboard; they call this “Hybrid SLI”
  • It makes for good battery life since you can switch from integrated graphics to SLI
  • The 3DMark Vantage Test score was only an okay 4,800 points


Price

  • $2,000 for the unit
  • If you want to upgrade to a 128GB Solid State Drive, it’s $4,200
  • Comparable Alienware or Falcon Northwest laptops are the same price and their form factor is much smaller
