AnandTech has taken a look at Toshiba's Satellite X205-S9359 a notebook which uses NVIDIA's GeForce 8700M GT graphics chip.
Like the Alienware m9750 and Dell XPS M1710, Toshiba's Satellite X205 is definitely more of a desktop replacement notebook as opposed to a truly mobile solution. It uses a very large 17" chassis that's actually taller than any other notebook we've looked at, although this can be both good and bad. Despite the large size, however, battery life is definitely a step up from gaming/enthusiast notebooks. Pricing is also a bit lower than what you might pay for some of the more performance oriented gaming laptops. The base model X205 starts at $2000, while the upgraded S9359 that we were sent starts at $2500.
Check out the review over here. Overall they conclude this is a reasonably fast notebook that allows you to play games at moderate settings while also offering very good multimedia features.
