This laptop has been an absolute pleasure to use. Its extremely responsive and the graphics that it churns out are stunning. The laptop is very quiet while running and the heat that is kicked out by the fan is a lot less than other gaming laptops I have used.
For an example of what the system can handle. I am able to run World of Warcraft at the native resolution, 1680 x 945, with the Ultra graphics setting and still manage 60 fps in crowded areas.
this machine rocks. the HD screen is just amazin along with the 460M graphics. i do wonder if 1.5gb of discrete graphics really has much of a difference with 1.0gb when gaming on an intel I5. i sont think the extra 512mb does anything. but its cool to have i guess.
bootup time is around 18-22 seconds. i play CODMW2, L4D, L4D2, FALLOUT3, BOISHOCK, BAD COMPANY2, HALF LIFE2, STARCRAFT 2, and CRISYS and they all play without a hickup on high or greater. this is a perfect take along gaming machine for those uf you on the go who want the power from home. love it.
This bad boy didn't even hiccup. I travel to play alongside others for raiding when i do play so mobility was important and wow this guy definately shows up their laptops and desktops. Nobody could believe such a creature existed :-D. Sooo basically I love the power and look it has.
As for the negatives so far... Not too much bloatware... Two major gripes.. The keyboard setup can get annoying... It has volume/media buttons directly to the left side of the keyboard and my hand has hit them MANY times so far interuppting whatever I was doing at the time. I would have much rather they positioned these buttons above the keyboard like most other laptops have...
Second... Its just huge... The Screen is beautiful at 18.4 inches, but the line of sight isn't so great. Its heavy and bulky. Don't plan on lugging this thing around with you where ever you go because its definately not convenient. I Love my T-mobile G2 for all my daily internet/communication tasks... and well for gaming this guy does the trick. I picked it up for 899.99 which is definately worth it.... I know ASUS has some good deals on their i7 models with 1GB DDR5 and blu ray... its all about what you want I guess..Read more ›
The illuminated keyboard is a nice touch. I was also surprised to find how good the speakers were and the are the best in a laptop that I have heard. To me it feels like the laptop is of good construction and I feel I got a good deal because it has the same chassis as much more expensive Qosimo models. I feel they did a great job designing the chassis/outside of the x505 series. It is easy to upgrade components like ram and hard drive by removing a few screws from the bottom of the laptop. Some people complain that shiny laptops like this show finger prints but as a personal preference that is a non-issue as I would prefer it to be glossy. The textured touch pad is a nice touch to use and makes that easier to use. Sleep and Charge is a neat feature I have not seen by other manufacturers and it is convenient because these days some devices come only with a usb cable for charging.Read more ›

Love the computer BUT Toshiba did me wrong with it. Mother board went out on it 4 times in 1 1/2 years. They wouldn't replace it the next time, wanted me to buy a warranty. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Pamela A Brown
Battery did not last much over a year. Would think the battery would last longer when you pay this much for a laptop.Published on September 8, 2012 by Scott A. Luckenbill
