Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X500-01R

65% Toshiba Qosmio X500 Gaming Notebook
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The Qosmio X500 is priced at Rs.1,00,990, which is about 25K less than the Asus G74SX. But, where it lacks in a superior graphics card and 3DVision capabilities, it makes up for that with the larger screen, better speakers and a lower price. There are some minor niggles like the average build quality, annoying shortcut buttons that get in the way and the outdated graphics card, which makes this price tag seem rather high. Perhaps at around 80K, we could see the X500 as 'the' multi-media notebook to beat'.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M:

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » 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.
