Toshiba Qosmio X500-10T - 18.4in Laptop


An 18.4in Full HD screen, Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, Blu-ray writer and a 1TB hard drive make this an intimidating machine.

Toshiba Qosmio X500-116 notebook


Toshiba's Qosmio desktop replacement laptops are big machines. Large, strikingly-designed and with lots of features. Add in Toshiba's exceptional build quality and you have a potentially winning series. This latest machine is the snazziest yet, with...

Great looks, powerful specs and impressive high-resolution screen

Too heavy for real portability and there are cheaper laptops that do almost as much

You won't want to lug this laptop around too much (at 4.6kg), but you may be happy to have it on display somewhere prominent, thanks to its stylish design. Though whether that's on your desk or somewhere suitable for watching Blu-rays is up to you....

Toshiba Qosmio X500


The Toshiba Qosmio X500 is here to prove that Toshiba's premium brand has what it takes to make it in the world of performance notebooks.

Great display delivers supremely beautiful 1080p Blu-ray enjoyment.

Its first generation i7 CPU, as impressive as it is, is going to start feeling dated quite soon.

Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q850 review: Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q850


Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q850

Top-of-the-line components, including Intel Core i7; second solid-state hard drive; massive 18-inch 1080p display.

Expensive; tiny touch pad; surprisingly cramped keyboard; mute button beeps loudly when pressed.

Toshiba revives its Qosmio gaming line with the high-end X505. It has everything from Blu-ray to an Intel Core i7 CPU, but it also carries a premium price.

Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q850


The Toshiba Quosmio X505-Q850 is first out of the gates with a mobile Core i7 processor, and it's fast. We give you an exclusive preview.

Gorgeous 18.4-inch, 1,920-by-1,080 resolution screen. Core i7 CPU. LED backlit keyboard. Solid multimedia test performance. Cheaper than comparable laptops.

Trailed in gaming performance. So-so battery life.

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500-10V Notebook


Big Gamer with Multimedia Ambitions. Toshiba presents a 18.4 inch

Chic and elegant case; Vast connectivity; Wrist-rest is always cool; Strong application performance due to Core i7; Over averagely good sound; Adequate battery life under low load

GeForce GTS 250 is considerably slower than GeForce GTX 260M; Smudge sensitive surfaces; Keyboard yields easily; Average display brightness

Efficient gaming notebooks: With a GeForce GTS 160M, like MSI's GT628. With a GeForce 250M like Acer's Aspire 8940G, MSI's GT640 and MSI's GT740. With a GeForce GTX 260M like Alienware's M15x, Asus' G60J, Asus' G60VX, Asus' G71GX, Asus' G72GX and...

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500 Notebook (GeForce GTX 460M)


Back in Game. The Qosmio X500 was supposed to be the flagship gam

Good loudspeakers; Blu-Ray burner; Lavish connectivity; Fast graphics card; Good application performance; Fan dissipates towards the rear

Sensitive high-gloss surfaces; Dark and reflective display; Very warm under load

The Asus G73JW is one of the first notebooks with the new GTX 460M graphics, beside the Toshiba Qosmio. Apart from that, gamers with HD5870 graphics cards: MSI GX740, Deviltech 9700 DTX, Asus G73JH and Medion Akoya X7811 based on MSI.

Review Toshiba Qosmio X500-121 Notebook


Let the games begin. The X500, an 18.4-inch desktop replacement, has already found its way into our editorial office before the review even began. Toshiba recently updated the graphics card, insisting on scrapping the planned GeForce GTS 250M and...

Excellent performance in applications, Good gaming performance, Great sound quality, Blu-Ray burner, Prolific connectivity, The Core i7-720QM together with the GeForce GTS 360M ensure that games and applications run at their peak

Sensitive high-gloss surfaces, Very warm under stress, Disappointing display (contrast, black value and viewing angle), The high-gloss chassis surfaces are very sensitive, quickly smudged and easily dirtied
