Toshiba Qosmio X775 Laptop Review
06/09/2011 | Nicholas Griffin
Toshiba are well known for creating some awesome laptops, and the Qosmio X775 is no differnt, it features an Intel i7 processor, the new Intel GTX 560M gaming card with 1.5GB GDDR5, alongside a massive 8GB’s of DDR3 RAM with a 1.25 TB hard drive.
This laptop would defiently give you some pretty extreme bragging rights, the Qosmio has a splash of red on the lid which may put some people off, but I like it. Under the lid you will find a touch sensitive media bar, which is situated between a pair of speaker grills.
Further down you you will find the laptop’s color turns to a dull grey which covers the rest of the notebook, with a touch of red along the trim of the touchpad, alongside that red backlit keyboard, which defiantly sets of the laptop.
The Toshiba Qosmio X775 measures in at 16.3 x 10.8 x 1.4 inches, weighing in at a tiny 7.5 pounds, which is two pounds lighter than Dell’s Alienware M17x making it extremely portable and lightweight. on the left of the device contains a lot of ports ranging from VGA, HDMI and Ethernet alongside 2 USB sockets one of with is 2.0 the other is 3.0.
On the right hand side contains another two 2.0 ports as well as a pair of headphone/ mic jacks, then on the front of the device is a 5 in 1 card reader. Probably the best part of the X775 is it’s keyboard with confortably spaced and silky keys, which are similar to thoose on the MacBook range, but have that impressive red glow.
The toshiba Quosmio X775 has it’s own brilliant 1920 x 1080 17.3 inch full HD screen, which is smaller than the previous model but not noticeable, it’s LED backlight provides the screen with bight, vivid colors, providing amaxing crisp images with a wide viewing angle, but the high gloss finish can be a bit annoying.
Above the screen is a dual-webcam to capture stereoscopic video blogs, as well as an embedded IR emitter allowing tou to enjoy all of your videos through NVIDIA’s 3D glasses, which will also work for watching 3D blu-ray movies and 3D enabled games.
We played a mix of Crysis, Portal 2 and team Fortress 2 all running simultaneously set at the highest setting with the only game failing being Crysis, but after turning the 3D switch down, it become a bit more playable, but it is still an amazing laptop with no gaming pedigree from Toshiba it is to be expected.

Toshiba have always made some brilliant laptops, my first laptop being a Toshiba Satelitte about 4-6 years ago, which still works now which is extremly good for a laptop of it’s age, from past knowledge I would defiantly reccommend this laptop to anyone considering buying a new laptop with some cool features.
