Toshiba’s new Qosmio X770 gaming laptop brings the storage, memory, 3D

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.

 

  1. 3.4kg is heavy, but look at the performance. What interests me is the battery life. One business trip, east coast, demands 4-5 hours. Would this be one or two spare batteries?

    1. Probably two, though I’m a little curious as to what sort of business trip calls for a gaming laptop. 🙂

  2. it sounds okay but no one has put how many ghz are on it to run your games mre smoothly ..with mre expensive pc’s you get less ghz fer sme reason ..where as cheaper ones…seem to have mre ghz….and with sme games..graphics have phenomally jumped up the lst few yrs and new intel core graphics also..cheers

    1. It’s not always about the megahertz or gigahertz! In a lot of cases, chip architecture makes the difference. 

      From what I’m seeing, the X770 will have at least a 2GHz processor, and coupled with a decent graphics card, should work out pretty well for games. 

  3. It’s a nice, powerful sounding laptop but how huge is a laptop with a 17.3 inch display? Is it really that portable? Why not go for a ‘all-in-one’ type desktop PC or Mac instead – might even take up less space on your desk.
