A review of Toshiba's Qosmio laptop
Toshiba's Qosmio laptop is the first laptop to expertly blend personal computing and audiovisual capabilities. It offers access to a TV, TV recording and DVD functionality without even having to boot the computer. This integration is a first in the world of PCs.
This particular Toshiba laptop includes three models in the Qosmio E10 series, featuring screen sizes from 15 inch to 17 inch. Toshiba designed the Qosmio based on the concept that customers not only like to enjoy their content at home but on the go also. With this in mind, they included a TV tuner that can be configured for use with NTSC, PAL or SECAM. The laptop also includes high-grade image reproduction and exceptional sound quality.
For the Qosmio, Toshiba developed a technology that combines a total of 11 image processing technologies for a wide range of image sources, including TV and DVD. It also includes a video enhancer for producing top-notch images in the Windows environment.
Image quality is further enhanced by the display on this Toshiba laptop. The “High-luminance Clear SuperView LCD” achieves a degree of brightness that is comparable to an LCD TV. This is accomplished by the integration of the two backlights and dual filter coatings that reduce the diffusion of internal light and the reflection of ambient light. The result is a super clear, high contrast image.
But what is the use of great image without great sound to accompany the picture? Toshiba solves this dilemma expertly. The Qosmio laptop includes two 2W 30mm diameter Harman Kardon speakers, the largest speakers ever integrated into a laptop computer. The result is sound like you have never heard, without the aid of a woofer.
This Toshiba laptop strived for ease of use and versatility. Therefore, its "QosmioPlayer" and "QosmioUI" control software allows quick access to TV, CDs or DVDs, without even having to boot Windows. To top it all off, the Qosmio supports recording to an integrated HDD.
If you are looking for a quality computing environment with extensive multimedia performance, the Toshiba Qosmio laptop will be hard to beat. It features the best of both worlds by seamlessly integrating computing and audiovisual technologies.
