This laptop is powered by the Intel Core i5-460M CPU. This  is a dual-core, 64-bit processor with 4 processing threads.  The cores operating at 2.53GHz normally, but can be boosted up to 2.8GHz with TurboBoost technology.  It has 3MB of L3 cache and uses 35W.  The laptop comes with 4GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB. That’s plenty of memory for all of your multitasking needs. It uses the Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset.

The display is an 18.4″ diagonal widescreen TruBrite TFT LCD display at 1680 x 945 native resolution (HD+). This display gives native support for 720p HD content and a 16:9 aspect ratio.  The screen is driven by the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 460M with 1.5GB GDDR5 discrete graphics memory. It is based on the GF106 core, which is related to the Fermi architecture.  That means it it supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0, so you’ll have gaming compatibility.

Storage is where this laptop really sets itself apart.  It comes with a speedy 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 7200RPM. Plenty of space for all your music, digital photos, apps and more. The optical drive is a DVD-SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash™ drive.

Additional storage can be had with the memory card reader which supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, Memory Stick™, Memory Stick PRO™, Multi Media Card formats.

For networking you get a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet adapter and your standard 802.11 b/g/n wireless adapter.  You can use that connectivity to video chat using the built-in webcam and microphone.

External ports include 1 VGA monitor port, 1 HDMI port, 1 S/P DIF output port (shared with headphone port), 1 microphone port, 1 headphone port, i.LINK™ IEEE-1394,  and 4 USB v2.0 ports (3 USB + 1 eSATA/USB combo with USB Sleep and Charge), 1 ExpressCard slot.  This laptop also comes with Harmon Kardon speakers and support for Dolby Home Theater.

The laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition.  Other software includes a bunch of Toshiba crapware and Adobe Acrobat Reader, Corel Label@Once, Google Chrome, Microsoft Office Starter 2010, Microsoft Live Essentials, Intuit Quickbooks Financial Center (trial), Skype and Norton Internet Security 2011 (30-day trial subscription).

The laptop measures 17.4” x 11.6” x 1.63” and weighs 10.1 pounds, so it’s more of a desktop replacement than something you want to carry around with you.  The 12 cell (8700mWh) lithium ion battery back provides up to 3 hours and 47 minutes of unplugged power. You’ll most likely be using the included 180W auto-sensing AC adapter for this big guy.

You can find the Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q892 laptop for around $1200.
