Toshiba's Qosmio X770 was an excellent laptop stuffed with potent nuggets of silicon that were easily capable of tackling demanding tasks and video games. Toshiba has given it a refresh for 2012 with the X870-11Q, which packs the latest Intel Ivy Bridge chips and a spicy Nvidia GeForce GT670M graphics card, letting you play the latest games at the highest settings without much trouble.My review model came with an Intel Core i7 processor, a whopping 16GB of RAM and will set you back £1,700 from the Toshiba online store.Like most of Toshiba's Qosmio range, the X870 is a chunky beast. It has to be, of course, as it's housing a gargantuan 17.3-inch screen. That should immediately extinguish any thoughts that this is the sort of laptop you'll be taking away on office trips or quickly whipping out on a train to send emails. At 418mm by 272mm, this is no super-sleek ultrabook. It measures 418mm wide and 272mm deep so it's not a machine that will sit comfortably in a shoulder bag. Find a suitable spot in your house and leave it there. Make sure your table's got good legs on it to support the not inconsiderable 3.4kg weight.
Spearheading the Ivy Bridge refresh for Toshiba is the 3D-toting gaming giant known as the Qosmio X870 (1,699 inc. VAT). From the black and chrome-red chassis to the bleeding edge components inside, this is a laptop designed specifically to take on the 3D-ready Samsung Series 7 Gamer and the might of the Alienware M17X. Its mission is to simply cater to power hungry gamers looking for the best machine to handle 2012's latest titles.We use the word giant with good reason; the X870's chassis is a huge 418 x 272 x 44mm and weighs an impressive 3.4kg. The design follows a head-turning trend with a black plastic body trimmed with shiny red chrome. In a world of sleek, silver machines, like the new MacBook Air or the Dell XPS 14, the Qosmio embraces the outlandish design we've come to expect from the gaming laptop stable. We have no doubt that the Qosmio X870 could run any game under the sun thanks to the combined power of the Intel Core i7-3610QM CPU, clocked at 2.3GHz and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670M graphics card. Meanwhile all the extra features we would expect from a laptop at this price are here in force.
