On the outside, the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725 is identical to all the other recent X305-series models we've looked at, so if you can't stand the bold design, there's little chance you'll care what's inside. But, if you're down with shiny flame graphics, the X305-Q725 is loaded up with high-performance parts, including a quad-core processor, speedy DDR3 memory, and dual hard drives, one of which is a 64GB solid-state drive. The Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725's high-performance components are just as fancy as its exterior--and its price tag won't let you forget it.

If you're a closet gamer who hides behind a screen name and isn't the trash-talking type, the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725 ($2,699.99 direct) is probably not for you. Its outlandish design, which conjures up images of fiery balls of flames striking a bloody canvas, seems fit for those who crave bragging rights for their systems. While the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725's fiery design may not appeal to everyone, its quad-core processor and an Nvidia GTX graphics card are parts that extreme gamers yearn for.

In terms of performance, the Qosmio X305-Q725 did what was expected from a notebook with its specifications. In several benchmark tests, the Qosmio X305-Q725 performed as well or better than some desktop systems. While high-end, powerful, desktop replacement gaming notebooks are never cheap, the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725’s $2,699.99 price tag is more affordable than many comparable laptops from boutique builders. The components used in this machine compliment each other well and strike a great balance between price and performance.

This powerful gaming rig’s quad-core engine, graphics performance, and excellent sound will blow you away. Gaming rigs don’t come much more stacked than this. Dropping $2,699 on a gaming machine is no laughing matter, but the Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725 is one seriously powerful gaming rig with superb sound. Its audio punch alone nearly puts this machine in its own class. However, the Alienware M17 provides more graphics oomph for $700 less, even though it lacks quad-core power. Still, the Qosmio X305-Q725 is an excellent multimedia and gaming notebook with plenty of style and substance.

Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q725 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Toshiba Qosmio X305 gaming notebook proved to be very capable in our testing but its steep price does raise a few eyebrows now that notebooks like the Gateway P-7811 FX are on the market for a fraction of the price. The overall size of the X305 also comes into play when you realize it is almost twice as thick as other gaming notebooks (even thicker than the dual-screen Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds). If you can get past the price and size it does offer the best sound system I have heard on a notebook and dual graphics card support on certain configurations. Build quality could be improved in some areas but it held up well in our testing ... if not for a few plastic squeaks and pops. If you have the backpack or shoulders to carry around this gaming rig then you should check out the Qosmio X305-Q725.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTX:

Similar to the 8800M GTX, the 9800M GTX is based on the G92 chip but includes more unified shaders. The 9800M GTX was later succeeded by the 55nm GTX 260M.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.


Q9000:

Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.

17.0": 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.

4.1 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
