Toshiba rolled out an expensive 17" notebook for gamers - the Qosmio X305-Q708. This model features the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300 processor, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M based motherboard, NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTX SLI, 4GB DDR3 1066MHz memory, 128GB SSD, 320GB (7200RPM) SATA HDD, DVD burner, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 1.3 megapixel webcam, full-size keyboard with keypad, four Harman Kardon stereo speakers, HDMI, DisplayPort, Wireless USB and USB Sleep-andCharge.
Pretty impressive but it has a MSRP of $4,199.99.
Providing optimal performance, the Intel Core 2 Quad processors(1) are designed upon the latest 45nm Intel technology for a quicker, cooler mobile gaming experience. Incorporating four processing cores, the Intel processor delivers greater efficiencies for the most demanding games. Additionally, the inclusion of dual NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS GPUs with NVIDIA SLi® technology, as well as 1GB of DDR3 discrete graphics(2) memory, is able to deliver an uncompromising gaming experience with blazing-fast frame rates and high-intensity visuals to gamers on-the-go.
“The key to a laptop's gaming prowess is unlocked with the graphics technology that it employs,” said Rene Haas, general manager of the mobile business unit at NVIDIA. “Through our powerful GeForce 9800M GTS GPU, the Qosmio X305 laptop has the power to take mobile gaming to new heights, and offer Toshiba customers a truly compelling visual computing experience on the go.”
To raise the performance bar even further, Toshiba has integrated the latest solid state storage technology into the laptop. The 128GB primary drive(3) consists of NAND flash memory which delivers faster access times and data transfer rates. Paired with a 7200rpm secondary 320GB hard disc drive(3), the solid state drive will take gaming performance to the next level.
