Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio F60

Qosmio's newest family addition. The first look at the 15.6 inch sized multimedia notebook reveals a BluRay drive, a GeForce GT330M graphics and the Toshiba-typical Harman/Kardon loudspeakers. We are anxious to find out what else is concealed in the glossy red-black case.

If you have the cash to splurge on a 15.6-inch multimedia notebook and one of your top priorities should be an eye-catching design, then the Toshiba QOSMIO F60 at S$2399 would seem more palatable. Compared to our previously reviewed Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 which posses better hardware and performance and costs less, the Toshiba would appear to be overpriced. However, style does come at a price and that's the Qosmio's proposition.

Toshiba's Qosmio F60 looks good, feels good to use and it delivers plenty of performance at a good price. It's not for people who demand the best eye candy when playing a game, but instead for gamers who don't mind sacrificing a bit of image quality and resolution for smooth frame rates. At the end of the day, the Toshiba Qosmio F60 is more than a gaming machine: it's a full-blown media centre that you can use to play Blu-ray movies, record TV shows and play music. We like it.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.89 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.
