Reviews for the Toshiba Qosmio X770-10J
Bird of Paradise. Never an easy feat for a laptop to stand out of the crowd of gaming notebooks, but Toshiba's Qosmio X770-10J pulls it off. The 17 inch notebook has it all: an interesting design, potent high-end hardware and clever features such as keyboard backlight and automatic graphics switching. All-in-all, a very well-rounded package which will be sure to entice more than a few buyers.

The Toshiba Qosmio X770 left an immediate impression on me for being possibly the ugliest notebook I have ever seen; it's rough, looks outlandish and is made entirely from cheap plastics. The build quality didn't feel good to me, the screen quality was just average and the battery life was short enough to make a rhyme.

I’m impressed with the look and feel of this beast and 3D maybe a gimmick but it’s sets this laptop apart from it’s peers. But for £1700 and an unattractive battery life you’re going need to ask yourself why you’re not buying a desktop for the same price with the same specs. Still, if you were saving up for an Alienware machine, the Toshiba Qosmio X770 will certainly save you a few quid.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M:
The successor of the GeForce GTX 460M based on the new GF116 chip. The performance is about 13% better than the 460M but with similar power requirements due to hardware optimizations.
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.
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 large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.
