I've had this laptop for a while now and have loved it every minute I've had it.

Pros - The Dual graphics cards, the processor speed, 4 GB RAM, good display and very good overall machine everything works well together. Laptops of equal capabilities cost significantly more.

Cons - Weight, Battery life, finger print magnet, lack of choice on colors (even just a black color alternative would suffice)

Notes on buying from Amazon.com - I got the laptop from Amazon for a cheaper price then anywhere else I found it. The delivery was right on-time and the packaging was done very well to protect the product. I was hesitant to order such an expensive electronic device from an online third party distributor but was very impressed with how it was handled and the quality of the product.

Graphics -
The dual video cards running with just over 1g dedicated memory really make my games run smooth. I haven't experienced any lag in my online gaming since I started playing them with this laptop.

Processor -
The dual processor at 2.26GHz and 4G RAM are very efficient at handling anything I've tried to run on it so far, and believe me I've tried to push it.
Note: you must load 64bit Vista version or it can only use 3Gb of the ram.

Display -
The screen is beautiful, it displays colors without any odd shadow spots or fuzzy areas on the edges. The only downside I've seen with the screen is on the default resolution settings without perfect vision some text can be a little difficult to read without moving your eyes closer then arms length.

Hard Drive -
The 320Gb HDD is ample space for a laptop.

Optical Drives -
The drive loads anything you put it in very quickly and quietly.

The laptop I brought is fast. I already own a fast desktop that has a Windows Vista rating of 5.0. This machine is 5.9 but that extra point 9 seems to make it twice as fast logging into the internet, downloading, and gives a nice edge with computer gaming.

I got this machine to replace my aging desktop that wasn't worth another upgrade. The day of the P4 is over. The specs on the Q720 are amazing and cost a lot less than my "state of the art' desktop did in 2003. This machine has done an excellent job of handling the daily tasks I throw its way: CAD, graphic design (CS3 and Corel X4), gaming, and digital DJing (M-Audio Torq).

Although I am overall very happy with the system specs, there are a few things I do not like about the Q720. The glossy keyboard gets pretty nasty, a short battery life (to be expected, really), the max resolution is low for a screen this size, the integrated webcam sucks, there is no internal Bluetooth and the design on the lid is just awful. I already dealt with the lid by wrapping it with a custom decal I made at work. Call your local digitial printer/sign shop if you're bothered by the design.

I consider most of the above problems to be rather trivial based on my usage and I still give this laptop a 5 star rating based on performance. The negatives of this laptop are easily compensated for by the dual NVidia 9800M GTS, 4 GB of DDR3, 64 bit OS, a Quadcore at 2.0Ghz and other little features such as wireless USB and a built in FM tuner. I also appreciate the quality sound hardware. After a few cosmetic alterations, the Q720 is the laptop that I was waiting for.

I puchased a Qosmio and right after the warranty ran out the lcd screen went blank. Turns out this laptop has a defective motherboard and it costs as much to fix this as it would to just buy a new laptop. I contacted Toshiba and although this is a known issue (found through search on the internet) they will not back up a defective product. We have other laptops older than this one that have worked wonderfully for over 5 years. I would not trust the Toshiba motherboard in the Qosmio - they are defective and Toshiba will not stand behind their product.

This is the second Toshiba laptop I have owned. The first was a Toshiba Satelite. The Qosmio I bought as a gift for myself after completing a seven month deployment in Iraq. I expected this to be an awesome gaming machine with good performance at a low price. Also, since my first Toshiba survived the deployment in a Pelican Case, I would go ahead and stay loyal to Toshiba. This laptop is a waste of money. The keyboard is designed sub-par and is very frusturating when I am typing on internet explorer, and the page goes back mysteriously. Also, it is poorly ventilated and easily overheats then shuts off. I even bought a cooling fan to help vent, and it still occasionally overheats. Overall, this machine has shut off about 150 times in the last year. Also, I cannot play Crysis because it freezes during videos. Battlefield BC2 doesn't work either because it freezes when loading levels in both multiplayer and campaign. Even Modern Warfare 2 was having some difficulties, and it froze three times in a row during campaign mode. I had to shut off the system and reboot each time. After hours of troubleshooting, updating drivers, and such, My conclusion is that the hardware was designed poorly. So when I get out of the Marine Corps next year and purchase a laptop for college, it will not be a Toshiba.
