Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio G50-127
Has Toshiba struck a balance between laptop performance and budget? The Toshiba Qosimo G50-127 is a large media centre that offers good value for money, although its rather garish design and sheer size might put some buyers off. The Qosmio G50-127 is a good option for those after a powerful laptop that won't break the bank, but if you're after true performance and can afford the price, we'd recommend looking elsewhere.

Toshiba’s Qosmio range has long been at the forefront when it comes to high-end multimedia laptops, but has recently lapsed with the death of HD DVD and widespread adoption of Sony’s Blu-ray technology. The Qosmio G50-127 is a good machine, but it doesn’t take the Qosmio line any further and no longer sets the pace when it comes to technology. That said, it’s still a lot of machine for the money, and if you want a laptop to replace your desktop PC then few offer better multi-tasking capabilities or comfort.

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT: Successor of the 8600M GT and because of the smaller 65nm production process the card is higher clocked (and therefore faster) with the same current consumption.Furthermore, it features an improved video processor (VP3) and HybridPower to save current (in conjunction with the 9100M G).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a very large display size for laptops on a desk without mobile use.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
