The Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q870 TruBrite 18.4-inch gaming laptop is a powerful laptop if you’re looking for a gaming machine you can carry from room to with you.

If you feel the need for speed, then the 1.6 GHz Intel Core i7-720QM processor (with Turbo Boost up to 2.8 GHz) will satisfy your need.  This quad core processor runs eight threads and comes with 6MB of Intel Smart Cache.  It’s a 64-bit chip manufactured with a 45nm die. The laptop comes with  4GB of DDR3 RAM (which can be upgraded to 8GB) gives you the memory you need to multitask without a worry.

The stunning 18.4″ TrueBrite LCD display runs at a resolution of 1680×945 with amazing color depth and clarity.  Native support for 720p HD resolution is enabled. For video processing power, this laptop comes with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTS 360M which features 1 GB of GDDR5 dedicated graphics memory.  No need to share memory with the system.  This chip has built-in CUDA technology to speed up tasks that normally slow down your system like video playback and HD movie editing.

A 500GB Serial ATA hard drive rotating at 7200RPM gives you lots of space for your data, and the impact sensor helps keep it safe. And since you have all this power you might as well take advantage of it with the Blu-ray drive which supports CD-R/RW, DVD +/-R, DVD+/-RW, DVD+/-DL and DVD-RAM.

The 1.3 megapixel webcam comes with Face Recognition capabilities for security that doesn’t require you to type or swipe your greasy fingers.  You can also switch between user profiles with just one look.

The high-speed wireless-N wifi networking (802.11b/g/n) give you greater range and speed if you’ve got an N router already.  If that’s not fast enough, hook up a cable to the Gigabit Ethernet port.

Let’s talk about external connections.  You get a 5-in-1 memory card reader which supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Multi Media Card, xD Picture Card.  There are 4 USB ports with one eSATA/USB combo port.  These are high-speed USB 2.0 ports.  HDMI-CEC audio/video output lets you control media players with a single remote.
