Toshiba outs a trio of Qosmio notebooks, sights set squarely at the gaming market


Toshiba’s line of Qosmio notebooks have always had high-end specifications and price tags, but they’ve always made it a point to market them as entertainment machines. Well, their launch of their three new notebooks, the X770, the F750 and the F750 2D today at the posh 7th High Club changed all of that.

With specs that no gamer can ignore, and with the emphasis on 3D gaming, Toshiba’s officially entered the arena that industry heavies like Dell’s Alienware and Asus’ ROG line have been playing in for awhile. But don’t think Toshiba’s going in half-cocked – their notebooks are armed to the teeth with jaw-dropping hardware that gamers are sure to appreciate.

The Qosmio X770, for example, carries a second gen Intel Core i5-2630QM processor, 8GB of DDR3 memory, NVIDIA GeForce GTX560M discreet card and a 17.3-inch 3D display (active shutter). It’ll retail for Php 129,990.

Aside a different GPU (a NVIDIA GeForce GT40M) the F750 is similarly specced. One noteworthy feature is the glasses free, 15.6-inch display, which is similar to the glasses free ROG notebook we saw back in COMPUTEX. No word on pricing or availability for this one.

If you’re not a fan of 3D, you can opt for the 3D-less Qosmio F750 2D, which is identical specs-wise to the F750. It’ll retail for Php 84,990.
