Toshiba Qosmio X775-3DV80
There are not a whole lot of choices when it comes to picking a new gaming laptop these days. Everyone I’ve talked to has said the same thing over and over again, “Alienware is the way to go”, but if you’re looking for an alternative to the Alienware series, then the Toshiba Qosmio X775-3DV80 is possibly the best alternative. The Qosmio X775-3DV80 comes with: the Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM processor , A 17.3″ widescreen, 8GB DDR3 1333MHz of memory, a 1.25TB: 500GB (7200rpm, Hybrid 4GB Serial ATA) + 750GB (5400rpm, Serial ATA) hard drive, and the 1.5GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560M 3D Vision graphics card, among other things.
Toshiba has traditionally been the company you go to when you want quality piece of equipment at an affordable price; always producing great electronics and providing excellent customer service. Now with Toshiba offering a competitive gaming laptop on their website, they seem to provide the best all around buying experience. It has always been my experience that the best products that I buy or the best companies to buy from are the ones with the best customer service, and from personal experience I can say that Toshiba has come through time and time again. Being able to buy a quality gaming laptop from Toshiba is awesome. It’s not to discredit any other companies out there but some people just prefer a pleasant experience when buying things. Seems like a simple concept but it does get overlooked.
Customer service aside, having the latest hardware for high performing laptops is a must when thinking about a new gaming laptop; most notably is the graphics card. The 1.5GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 560M (3D Vision) graphics card is one of the most (if not the most) high performing card offered my NVIDIA. Now the 3D Vision option is up to you. I have yet to play in 3D vision online but I can only assume that it’s pretty sweet. I don’t know if I would be able to handle it though. If you’re like me, during online play I’m spending most of my concentration on what’s coming around the corner or what my FPS are. I think the 3D vision would be lost on me but then again, gaming laptops have excellent video quality for movies and streaming and such. I might have to give it a shot (no pun intended).
Quality product from a quality company, the Toshiba Qosmio X775-3DV80 is a great all around purchase for a new gaming laptop.
