Toshiba Qosmio X75-A7180 17.3-Inch Laptop Review

Toshiba Qosmio X75-A7180

The Toshiba Qosmio X75-A7180 laptop pushes the boundaries of power and performance with a blazing-fast Intel Core i7 quad core processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M graphics, plus a huge, 17.3" diagonal, Full HD, TruBrite display and tons of high-end entertainment features and hardware, making it ideal for creative pros, advanced users and hard-core gamers. 

The Qosmio X75 laptop's quad memory slots and massive dual-drive storage provide all the room you need to run and store your graphics-intensive content. Between the killer graphics and the audio provided by quad Harman Kardon speakers, you'll have all you need for a truly awesome entertainment experience.

The Qosmio X75-A7180 17.3" Notebook Computer from Toshiba features black widow styling in a diamond-textured aluminum pattern. The 17.3" TruBrite TFT LED-backlit display has a 16:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution, powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770M graphics card with 3GB of GDDR5 discrete graphics memory and NVIDIA 3D Vision. The screen supports native Full HD 1080p content playback so you'll be able to experience your favorite high definition movies without upscaling. You can also output video to a larger external display, such as an HDTV, via the HDMI port.

The system is powered a 4th-generation Haswell 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor. It also has 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L RAM, a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive, a 256GB solid state drive, a Blu-ray Disc burner, a 6-in-1 media card reader, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam, and microphone. There are also built-in harman/kardon quad speakers with DTS Studio Sound technology.

Quick list of pros and cons:


  • SSD boot drive means fast start up speeds
  • Solid graphics card
  • Nice display, 1920x1080
  • HDMI and VGA outputs
  • BluRay optical drive


  • Fan exhaust is right where I use a mouse; easy to work around but inconvenient
  • Toshiba drivers can be a pain
  • Power adapter is bulky and tricky to connect
  • Windows 8

Overall a great laptop, would recommend.
