To raise the performance bar even further, this Qosmio also combines a 64 GB NAND solid state flash drive--which delivers faster access times and data transfer rates--with a 7200 RPM 320 GB SATA hard disk drive.
Enjoy all the in-your-face realism of today's hottest 3D games with the 17-inch high-definition screen with a 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) resolution and amazing brightness, contrast, color saturation and overall image quality. And you'll get crisp, immersive audio from four high-fidelity stereo speakers--and one very powerful sub-woofer.
It's powered by the latest Intel Core 2 Quad processor--with four processing cores and Centrino 2 technology--which boosts speed, reduces power requirements, and saves on battery life. The 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 includes a quick 1066 MHz front-side bus and 6 MB of L2 cache, providing an optimized, multithreaded architecture for improved multimedia and multitasking performance.
Other features include 4 GB of RAM (maximum capacity), Draft-N Wi-Fi networking (802.11b/g/n), Bluetooth connectivity, HDMI video output, S/PDIF digital audio output for 5.1-channel surround sound, dual-label DVD drive with Labelflash printing (also burns CDs), webcam and microphone mounted on display bezel, and multi-format memory card reader. Additionally, this Toshiba notebook is RoHS-compatible, effectively reducing the environmental impact by restricting the use of lead, mercury and certain other hazardous substances.
Whether you're creating multimedia, annihilating your gaming enemies, or running compute-intensive applications at one time, new quad-core processing will change the way you do everything. The Q9000 has an ultra-fast 1066 MHz front-side bus (FSB) and a 6 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)
You get four dedicated, physical threads help operating systems and applications deliver additional performance that enhance multi-tasking and multi-threaded performance across many types of applications and work loads. The Smart Memory Access feature improves system performance by hiding memory latency, thus optimizing the use of available computer data bandwidth to provide data to the processor when and where it is needed. The Advanced Digital Media Boost feature effectively doubles the execution speed for instructions used widely in multimedia and graphics applications. And with the Intel 64 Architecture, the processor can access larger amounts of memory. With appropriate 64-bit hardware and software, platforms based on an Intel processor supporting Intel 64 Architecture can allow the use of extended virtual and physical memory.
This SATA hard disk drive also quickens the pace with a higher speed transfer of data--akin to Firewire and USB 2.0.
With the Labelflash functionality, you can burn high-resolution, high-contrast pictures on the label side of DVD discs using the same laser used for data recording. Enjoy transparency and high-quality not found in traditional printable media. All you need is a Labelflash DVD disc to start labeling without a printer.
Nvidia Hybrid SLI technology delivers multi-GPU benefits when an Nvidia motherboard GPU is combined with an NVIDIA discrete GPU. With GeForce 9700M, the essential benefit of this technology is the ability to extend the life of your battery considerably with HybridPower. HybridPower technology is a key feature of Hybrid SLI, allowing you to unleash graphics performance when you need it, or instantly switch gears to a lower power mode from the motherboard GPU for longer battery life and quieter operation. This reduces system power consumption dramatically and extends battery life up to 40 percent longer.
It also features four stylishly incorporated Harman Kardon stereo speakers with a built-in subwoofer.

It is true that if you are looking for a slim light weight computer the Toshiba Qosmio X305 is probably not the best notebook, it is a little big and heavy but it compensates on... Read morePublished on July 15, 2009 by Andres Camargo
Received the goods as described per ad. Couldn't tell if it was a good
deal or not cause it wouldn't finish booting. Could have happened in shipping. No harm/ no foul..

The screen is not even 1080 HD. The 2.26 processor is slow by current standards-this would have been a good gaming machine 4 years ago, not today. Read morePublished on June 6, 2009 by Sean Byron
