Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X300-13W

85% Toshiba Qosmio X300-13W laptop
Source: Reg Hardware English
The X300-13W may be a bit of a departure for Toshiba, but it certainly has the looks and the power to make a fine gaming laptop. It’s not badly priced either, as similar 17in laptops from gaming specialists such Alienware, also come in at well over £2000. Its size, weight and limited battery life mean that it’s not the most portable of laptops, but it’s an excellent option for gamers who are looking for an alternative to a conventional bulky tower PC.

DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
