Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X70-A-12W
Source: Digital Versus
The Toshiba Qosmio X70 offers an all-round multimedia experience on which you can play games, watch movies, listen to music, etc. It has power, lots of ports and a Blu-ray player to offer the most fun possible. Which is why it's weird that the screen would be so bad, high resolution notwithstanding.

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.
