Series:

The main standout feature of this Toshiba offering is the large 17.3 inch screen, a real treat for those who like big and dramatic displays. The enormous screen on this laptop purportedly replaces the need for a conventional desktop, and offers all the usual features a PC offers. Users can choose between a myriad of Intel processor (up to i7) or multi core AMD A-Series processors as hardware.

This will undoubtedly be sufficient to store files, data and even entertainment like games, music and movies. Speaking of which, the laptop comes equipped with a DVD player, which can optionally be upgraded to a Blu-ray player. There are also chambered speakers powered by DTS. As usual, there are USB 3 and HDMI ports for all your data transfer needs. Design wise, it comes in a glossy metallic color, suitable for both business and pleasure. Rounded corners embellished in silver give it an added touch of class.

A USB sleep and charge port allows users to charge any external electrical gadget via a USB cable even when the laptop is switched off. This general purpose laptop is worth its mid-range price as it can cater to virtually any need.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M: Mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

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

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.  


4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.3": 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.

2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders.
