Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q708

Is the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q708 worth buying? That's the $4200 question. In light of its unimpressive screen resolution and odd keyboard, you'll have to provide your own keyboard, monitor, and mouse if you plan on having a serious gaming session at home. And though this desktop replacement has some of the most advanced hardware on the market, plus a class-leading sound system, you can get comparable gaming and multimedia performance for a fraction of the price from competing laptops. That said, half the appeal of this machine consists in watching it turn heads at your next LAN party. Trust me, it will.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS:

Based on the desktop 9600 GT (G94 core), the 9800M GTS is produced in 65 nm and 55 nm on the 512 MB and 1024 MB models, respectively. The performance of the GTS is comparable to the GT version due to the higher clock speed. The PureVideo HD engine allows the GPU to decode HD videos.

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