Review Toshiba Qosmio X300-11L Gaming-Notebook

 

Toshiba goes Gaming! Toshiba's Qosmio X300 is a dream come true f

good workmanship; stable plastic case; Harman Kardon sound system; sub-woofer; extensive interface equipment (HDMI, eSata) with user friendly alignment; remote control; temperature; performance; design

poor battery life; glossy keyboard; slightly weak CPU performance; heavily reflecting display

Wie wir anhand der Tests feststellen konnten, bringt der Turbo Knopf zwar etwas bessere Werte, ist aber im praktischen Spiele-Alltag kaum bemerkbar und somit eher zu vernachlässigen. Dies liegt wohl daran, dass sich die Übertaktung mit Hilfe des Turbo...

Toshiba Qosmio X300-130

 

Toshiba's Qosmio X300-130 holds a lofty price tag of US '178 and the company reckons this desktop replacement ‘combines massive performance with ground-breaking style'. Is there substance to both of Toshiba's claims?

If you've got the cash, this notebook can tackle both apps and games with ease.

Toshiba Qosmio X300-148 review

 

Toshiba's Qosmio X300 is a competitive laptop for the price, but performance lags compared to the competition

Good value ; Decent specs

Cheap and tacky feel ; Performance doesn't match more serious machines

Toshiba Qosmio X300-11s notebook

 

It might look flash, but can it perform?

The Toshiba Qosmio X300-11s manages to bring the notion of media centre and gaming machine together in a striking notebook design. It's not without its flaws but there is no denying the power and performance of this machine.

There's probably nothing worse than a laptop that stands out from the crowd, especially one with as much flare as Toshiba's Qosmio X300; unless you lo...

Good for playing the latest games, reasonably powerful speakers, good screen

Main speakers are on the palm rest, keyboard does not illuminate, hard drive transfers were slow, lacks a high-definition drive

It's fast and not overly expensive compared to other gaming laptops, but almost everyone who saw this thing commented on how ugly it looks. Take a look at the pics and judge for yourself.

Toshiba Qosmio X300-11S review

 

A powerful, eye-catching gaming system, but flawed for multimedia use

Powerful performance ; Strong graphics ; Great audio ; Bright screen

Poor battery life ; Bulky ; Limited multimedia features

Tosh's latest laptop is a Pimp My Ride affair. But should a laptop ever have the equivalent of alloy wheels?

Size is important when it comes to laptops and, loud design apart, this just shouldn't be so big

Toshiba - Qosmio X300-15T

 

Toshiba's Qosmio notebooks certainly make a striking visual impact with their bold red colour scheme and flame-adorned livery. Fortunately the £1,400 X300-15T has the performance credentials to match its hot-rod looks. At the heart of this ...

Superb looks and great performance are not enough to elevate the Qosmio X300-15T to must-have status, as an unfortunate lack of battery life, screen quality and value for money hamper an otherwise impressive package.

Toshiba Qosmio X300

 

Battery life isn't great, but the X300 packs a powerful punch and a stylish design

The X300-13W may be a bit of a departure for Toshiba, but it certainly has the looks and the power to make a fine gaming laptop. It’s not badly priced either, as similar 17in laptops from gaming specialists such Alienware, also come in at well over...

Toshiba Qosmio X300-13O - Futuristic heavyweight

 

The Toshiba Qosmio X300 is a so-called ‘desktop replacement', which explains the enormous size of the laptop. The Qosmio X300 offers some of the newest hardware and a very special design that gives it a raw sort of look. In the 130 configuration that...
