Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X70-A-10F
The Qosmio has undeniable power levels thanks to its current-generation hardware, but the Toshiba's table-topping benchmark results are undermined by small flaws elsewhere: the battery life isn't up to scratch, the keyboard and build quality are mediocre, and the volume from the Harmon/Kardon speakers isn't matched by good quality. As for the price, it's just too high. The Asus and Gigabyte machines offer similar power and similar flaws for hundreds of pounds less. And if you're determined to spend this amount on a gaming notebook, the MSI GS70 Stealth is a more rounded package.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M: Upcoming high-end graphics card for laptops and part of the 700M series.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these 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.
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.
