Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV425

 

Just $1,600 nets you an HD DVD drive on the cool-looking Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV425 laptop.

Attractive price. Redesigned, sexier chassis. Terrific sound experience. HD DVD-ROM plus HDMI-Out. Processing parts are practically the same as the Qosmio G45-AV680's.

Too much proprietary and third-party software loaded. Dismal battery life.

SlashGear Review – Toshiba Qosmio F45

 

I've had the opportunity to use the Qosmio F45 for a little while now, and it's come time for me to let you guys know just how this machine performs. As with many of my reviews, I'm not going to focus on benchmarks as I am actual usability, because...

Overall, it’s a great HD DVD player, but you really need a larger screen to truly appreciate the high definition video, it would have been nice if they included an HDMI port so you could watch your movies on the big screen at home. It is a powerful...

Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV412 review

 

Toshiba's Qosmio line is known for high-end home theater features and high prices, and like the flagship 17-inch

Eye-catching design; HD DVD drive, volume jog wheel, and other media controls add convenience; built-in subwoofer.

The 15-inch display can't support HD DVD's full 1080p resolution; no DVI or HDMI ports; dreadful battery life; front-loading optical drive can get in the way.

Toshiba's Qosmio F45-AV412 offers a wealth of multimedia features, but the HD DVD drive and subwoofer seem like overkill for a 15-inch laptop. You're better off spending a bit more for a 17-inch model for this type of laptop.

Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV425

 

In Toshiba's five notebook product lines, the Qosmio notebooks focus on entertainment. The Toshiba F45-AV425 represents that focus with its widescreen display, NVIDIA graphics, built-in HD-DVD drive, Harman Kardon speakers with subwoofer, Dolby Home...

Great CPU and graphics performance, beautiful screen, excellent WiFi, great HD-DVD movie watching experience, outstanding audio, and gaming is a joy on the Qosmio

Too much bloatware, very short battery life. Not a terribly portable notebook among others in the 15 inch class

The Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV425 is a competitive AV and gaming notebook with a fantastic screen, powerful processor and dedicated graphics and excellent sound system. The HD-DVD optical is a valuable add-on and the WiFi 802.11AGN has excellent range and...

Toshiba Qosmio® F45-AV410 (PQF43U-007005) PC Notebook

 

The Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV410 come with 1.66 Intel Core Duo processor bring exellent performance. Although this is not slim enough. The 15.4 inch display give great graphics experience when watching your favourite movie or playing games.

1.66 Intel Core Duo provide great performance ; built in 802.11 WiFi simply connect to internet instantly ; cristal clear screen display ; with 200GB space hard disk capacity you can download and save large files on your HDD

with 20 pounds weight it's bit heavier than other notebook in the market today. the built in camera isn't clear at all.Bundle with Vista Home premium, I decide to down-grade with XP
