One of two new installments in Toshiba's Qosmio line of mobile entertainment laptops, the G15-AV501 offers a bit more oomph than the inaugural model. With slightly more powerful components and all of the added benefits of Microsoft's Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, the Qosmio G15-AV501 looks to play the part of laptop, TV, DVD player, and personal video recorder, all at once.
Toshiba's multimedia and gaming Qosmio X75 laptop gets great performance from its high-end components at a reasonable price, but the design and some features feel dated.
We have yet to see a truly great gaming laptop built from the ground up with Windows 8 in mind, but the 17-inch Toshiba Qosmio X875 can be configured into a powerful, reasonably priced mainstream gaming machine.
With the recent emphasis on better materials and design across all laptop segments, the gaudy, plastic Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 delivers decent performance, but not a look to match.
The glasses-free 15-inch 3D display on the Toshiba Qosmio F755 falls just short of being really impressive. The software support and stability are better than for previous models, but low-end hardware needlessly hobbles this laptop.
Toshiba enters the growing Chromebook market with the first 13-inch model. It's a great size for switching between travel and home/office use and feels comfortable to type on, but other Chromebooks offer more features for the same price.
While no style maven or template for reference color, the Toshiba AV502U series can do black levels better than most inexpensive LCDs.

Despite a big display and a nice array of ports and connections, the Toshiba Satellite M35X-S163's poor battery life and subpar performance render it suitable only for very basic home use.
The original Toshiba Portege Z835 was a fantastic value that helped us overlook a weak touch pad/keyboard combo. This faster version is about $200 more, but keeps the same so-so design.
