Toshiba Qosmio G40-10E

 

Toshiba takes its flagship multimedia notebook range, gives it a fresh lick of paint, more shiny bits and an HD DVD-R drive. Has it created the ultimate multimedia notebook?

If you have the money and want a multimedia notebook then the Qosmio G40-10E has you covered. An HD DVD-R drive and a superb display combine to great effect and, despite a few design foibles, a combination of size and design give it a distinct visual...

Toshiba Qosmio G40-108 review

 

Comfortable and not complacent in features, Toshiba unleash their latest Qosmio

Good screen ; High quality audio ; Great keyboard

Poor 3D performance ; Not the cheapest laptop around

The original high-end multimedia range produces another excellent laptop

Toshiba Qosmio G40 (PQG40A-00Y014)

 

The next model in Toshiba's Qosmio line up of home entertainment oriented notebooks has arrived. Two big things were planned for the G40 before its re...

HD-DVD-R drive, high-resolution screen, Four speakers and subwoofer, 2 megapixel camera, Two hard drives

HD-DVD-R drive speeds have not improved, No HD-DVD-RW drive this time around

We're disappointed that no HD-DVD-RW was included, but if there's no media what's the point? The new look is nice and the other enhancements make this notebook a better choice than its predecessors. We'd certainly recommend this model over the previous...

Toshiba Qosmio G40

 

Like its predecessor, the Qosmio G30, Toshiba's flagship multimedia desktop replacement offers a complete suite of entertainment features. The G40 is slightly slimmer and has a couple of tricks up its sleeve.

Integrated Webcam ; Powerful graphics performance ; Strong multimedia features ; Unique Plug-and-Charge USB port ; 1GB Intel Turbo Memory

Dedicated numeric keypad absent ; High-maintenance glossy surface ; Heft

Service and Support Toshiba offers a one-year international carry-in warranty for this machine, with options to upgrade the coverage period at the point of purchase. For greater convenience, you can register the warranty online instead of mailing it...
