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.

  • Intel Core i7-720QM
  • Nvidia GeForce GTS 250M
  • 6GB DDR3 1,066MHz
  • 320GB (7,200rpm) Serial ATA hard-disk drive
  • optional 64GB Serial ATA solid-state drive
  • Blu-ray Drive
  • Windows 7 Ultimate
  • 18.4-inch diagonal wide-screen TruBrite TFT LCD display at either 1,920x1,080 pixels or 1,280x720
