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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
One gripe I have is that the USB charging function does not seem to work at all! I have a wide variety of USB devices and have tried them all. None of them receive any charge from the machine when it is off. This "Sleep and Charge" function was one of the major considerations for me when I was looking for a new laptop, so it was a big disappointment to have it not work.
The fiery red color scheme is a bit much. I get what Toshiba was trying to do, but if I would have had a choice (like Black), I would have definitely opted for something less "Hot-Rod".
All in all, I am pleased with this machine and would recommend it to anyone considering a high-end laptop.
