There's plenty to like about the Toshiba Qosmio X875-Q7390, like its cool design, abundant storage capacity, and, of course, its superlative 3D display. At the end of the day, however, performance is the paramount consideration when it comes to gaming laptops. That, along with battery life, ultimately conspire against the Qosmio X875-Q7390 and prevent it from snagging the Asus G75VW-DH72's title as Editors' Choice for midrange gaming laptops. Still, its content creation abilities and incredible display alone make it worth checking out, and we nonetheless recommend doing so.

Back in 2011, 3D was touted as the next wave of tech. Flash forward to 2013, and 3D remains more a novelty than a truly compelling gaming feature. Thankfully, the Toshiba Qosmio X875-Q7390 can stand on its own as a viable gaming notebook. For $1,849, gamers get a Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GTX graphics and a pair of 1TB hard drives in a sleek, stylish package.

The Toshiba Qosmio X875 is a gaming laptop both inside and out thanks to its design and strong internal specs that include an Intel Core i7, 1080p display and 16GB of RAM. The display is also stereoscopic 3D-enabled and it also has a Blu-ray burner, which is a rarity. The design of the X875 is rather simple with some gaming-esque flares, like the red edges and slick black diamond-textured aluminum exterior. It is rather big and heavy at 16.5 x 10.7 x 1.7-inches and weighs 7.7-pounds.

As one of only a handful of 17-inch gaming laptops we've seen since the launch of Windows 8, the Toshiba Qosmio X875 already stands out from all the slim ultrabooks and convertibles we've reviewed recently on that basis alone. We have yet to see a truly great gaming laptop built from the ground up with Windows 8 in mind, but the 17-inch Toshiba Qosmio X875 can be configured into a powerful, reasonably priced mainstream gaming machine.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M: Renamed GeForce GTX 570M with slightly higher core clock speeds
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.
3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.

75.6%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
