Gamers who need a ton of power don’t often find much in the laptop space, but Toshiba hopes to change that with an update to its Qosmio range that features more space, memory, and graphical ability than we’ve seen in a while.
Announced this week, the new Qosmio X770 offers a 17.3 inch widescreen Full HD screen, Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB memory, Nvidia GeForce 560 graphics with 1.5GB memory, Windows 7 64-bit, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, multi-touch trackpad with gesture support, Blu-ray drive, USB 3.0, and Harman Kardon speakers with subwoofer.
What’s more, Toshiba has packed the X770 with storage aplenty. You’ll find two hard drives on offer here, with one 750GB drive and one hybrid 500GB drive with 4GB solid state. This 500GB/4GB combo – also known as a hybrid HDD/SSD system – allows the computer to work faster, sending some of the files to the very fast solid state 4GB drive.
3D is also included – complete with a pair of 3D glasses in the box – with Toshiba using Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology seen in last year’s A660 laptop.
If this sounds like a winner for you, Toshiba says it’ll be coming within the next week or two for $2,699 RRP. Be aware though, this isn’t a light computer, with the scale being tipped at 3.4kg.
