The Toshiba Satellite P775-S7320 looks like a sweet deal. For less than a grand you get a fast Intel quad-core processor, lots of RAM, a large hard drive, a Blu-ray player and HDMI out, and a big 17-inch screen. As long as your performance needs don't go far beyond basic productivity tasks, the Toshiba Satellite P775-S7320 is a decent big-screen laptop.

The Toshiba Satellite P775-S7320 is worth considering if you're in the market for a big screen laptop with Core i7 power and a Blu-ray player. Granted, the 17.3-inch display is nice, but it would be even nicer if it could display full-blown HD content at 1080p. Despite its less than stellar Photoshop score it has more than enough power to make short work of your productivity and multimedia workload, and a relatively light chassis makes it a bit more portable than most desktop replacements. That said, the P775-S7320 can't match the gaming prowess of our current Editors' Choice, the HP Pavilion dv7-6143cl, which offers a discrete graphics card and a whopping nine-hour battery life.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable 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.
2670QM: Fast Quad-core processor clocked at 2.2-3.1 GHz 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.
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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
