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...

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

Able to run DirectX 9 and 10 games at playable framerates, swift apps machine, oodles of storage, brilliant screen, strong audio system

Not the right OS, overdone exterior, bulky

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

A garish design that won't suit everybody, but still offers value for money

Toshiba Qosmio X300-11s notebook - Pocket-lint

 

While not to everyone's taste, there is no denying the performance of this notebook

Powerful, great graphics

Love/hate design, no Blu-ray, poor battery

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.

Toshiba Qosmio X300

 

It's too bloody red!

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

So long as Blu-ray isn't on your wish-list, this well-priced laptop could be the one for you

Toshiba Qosmio X300 review

 

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
