At $3500 (as of 11/6/06) the G35-AV660 is far from cheap. But for the ultimate notebook multimedia experience, it can't be beat. If hi-fi sound and TV viewing are your goals, this Qosmio laptop is the best game in town.

A well-equipped, high-definition multimedia notebook with Core 2 Duo horsepower and a massive amount of storage space. The Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV660 is easily one of the most robust multimedia notebooks out there. If you’re looking for a top-shelf system with HD components and can afford the price of owning the latest technology, look no further. If you want to save money, though, the G35-AV650 may be the way to go.

Bottom line: HD playback is much improved since Toshiba ditched InterVideo's software and went with its own. You'll have to decide if the faster processor and extra RAM are worth the $500 price increase. Pros: Smooth HD playback with Toshiba's proprietary software. IR receiver built into the laptop. Fast Intel Core 2 Duo processor. 2GB of RAM. Cons: QosmioPlayer does not support HD playback in preboot mode. Volume has to be cranked up when using Toshiba HD DVD player. Even more expensive than before.

The good: Crisp display; complete set of A/V controls, ports, and connections, including an HD-DVD drive. The bad: Expensive; somewhat dim display; cramped keyboard and no separate number pad; bulky and heavy, even for a desktop replacement. The bottom line: The Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV660 continues to deliver the most complete multimedia experience available in a laptop, but at least one other laptop delivers similar features at a much lower price.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 is a middle class video card of the 7000 series and suited for games of the year 2006. The performance is very similar to ATI X1600 / X1700. Compared to the desktop 7600 it is clearly slower.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

17.1": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

4.7 kg: This laptop is heavy. Especially desktop replacements with 19 inch display fit in this class of weight. This class is too heavy, even for 17 inch DTR.

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.
