TOSHIBA Qosmio X505-Q898 NoteBook Intel Core i7 740QM (1.73GHz) 6GB Memory 500GB HDD 64GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M 18.4" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
  • Intel Core i7 740QM (1.73GHz)
  • 6GB Memory 500GB HDD 64GB SSD
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
  • 1920 x 1080
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
  • BD Combo

Pros:

-Top of the line core i7 processor, fast Nvidia GTX 460M GPU,

-Largest screen ive ever seen on a laptop,

-Having an SSD and a decently fast mechanical hard drive for mass storage is excellent.

-The sound on this unit is superior to any laptop i have owned in the past.

-The performance and overall luxury that this machine provides is an excelent value when you compare it to Alienware/XPS systems if you cant afford the brand name.

-No regrets at all about buying this system and i have owned it for 3 months now

Cons:

-no USB 3.0 ports, although you can always add a card for that later on.
-short battery life, but that is something i expected when buying a laptop with such high end features

-comes with the usual extra junk software that i uninstalled after buying, most machines come with this though

-had an issue getting ubuntu 10.10 running on here correctly with this graphics card

Other Thoughts:

before buying this unit also check out the ASUS G73JW-A1
or if you dont mind doing some easy work and have extra money buy the Qosmio X505-Q896 which has all the same specs except insted of a SSD and a 500GB drive it just has the 500GB and insted of 6GB ram it comes with 4GB. if you get the 896 you can always upgrade these parts on your own with ones that you choose to get a little more performance.
If you do decide to get a Q896 insted and want to add a 2nd hard drive you will need the bracket/mount. The part number for this from toshiba is Part Number: PQX33U-01J00H
