We've always liked Toshiba's high-end Qosmio systems, which are inventive desktop replacement laptops that experimented with add-ons such as Webcam-enabled gesture controls. Toshiba has wisely thinned the lineup down to one model, the new Qosmio X505, which features Intel's new mobile Core i7 processor.

Here are some specs for the Qosmio X505-Q850, which will have an 18.4-inch display, and come in a dark finish called Fusion Omega black. The high-end configurations will cost more, but the X505 should start at around $1,500, and will be available on October 22, along with Windows 7.
