Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV600 review: Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV600

The biggest surprise, however, was that the Qosmio G35-AV600 fell flat in our gaming tests; the previous version came with an Nvidia GPU that was one step down from the top, but the Qosmio G35-AV600's GeForce Go 7300 GPU is pure entry-level. Equipped with the GeForce Go 7300 GPU and 256MB of VRAM, it still managed to turn in only 7.5 measly frames per second (fps) in our Doom 3 test. The Inspiron E1705, for contrast, scored 56.5fps.

Toshiba backs its laptops with an industry-standard one-year limited parts-and-labor warranty and 24/7 toll-free phone support for the life of the warranty--not the life of the product. Toshiba's support Web site is industrial strength and very well organized. It features sections for driver downloads, tech support, warranty and service, and interactive support. Toshiba preloads the Qosmio's hard drive with a whole bunch of service and support utilities, and the system comes with both a helpful orientation flyer and a complete, but not overwhelming, printed resource guide.
