Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio G40 10E

80% Toshiba Qosmio G40 10E multimedia laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
Although affordability is often a key concern when choosing a laptop, if you want the very best performance it can be worth spending a bit extra. Features such as superior quality of display are expected if you are forking out a lot for a multimedia laptop and Toshiba has achieved an extremely high standard in the 17in screen of its Qosmio G40 10E. Supporting HD-DVD playback, we were impressed by the Toshiba Qosmio G40 10E’s smooth and crisp display when watching high-definition films. But the multimedia capabilities don't stop there as the Toshiba Qosmio G40 10E incorporates an HDDVD writable drive. The Toshiba Qosmio G40 10E is attractive from the outside, with its glossy dark blue casing and silver lettering. But while the white interior may look clean, the obtrusive dials, flashing lights and large speakers are slightly less stylish.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT: The NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 GT GPU for laptops. Depending on the used graphic memory and the clock speed,  the performance is between the 7600 GT and 7900 GS video card.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.


T7300: 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.


4.4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit 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.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
