Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite A665-S6070
In terms of pure performance, we've seen better multimedia and gaming machines. What we haven't seen -- until now -- is one that packs 3D right out of the box into an attractive chassis with a winning display and high usability. It's expensive, but all things considered, we think the Toshiba Satellite A665-11Z is a thoroughly decent laptop.

Oversize 16- to 18-inch desktop replacement laptops have different standards than the smaller systems you might carry around every day. Battery life isn't much of a concern, as they're too big to fit into a shoulder bag, so high-end components are common, including Intel's Core i7 processors, massive hard drives, and dedicated gaming graphics--all features you're less likely to see on a 13-inch or midsize laptop. Toshiba's 16-inch Satellite A665-S6070 desktop replacement offers plenty of performance for just under $1,000, unfortunately wrapped in a dull plastic case.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
