Toshiba previously had four distinct laptop ranges, excluding the more recent Portegés; Satellite for the everyday market, Satellite Pro and Tecra for the professional or technical users and the Qosmio designed and featured for the executive market and which was priced to match. With a Qosmio you may have had metal or reinforced casings for the base and lid with metal hinges, enhanced design and keyboard, and a higher build quality. Their CD/DVD writers would probably feature a metal-lined disk drawer rather than plastic and there may be other evidence of superior build. Although I have owned several Toshiba laptops, more than any other single brand, and loved them none were Qosmio.

Toshiba appear to have reassigned the Qosmio range. Currently, there are two products in the range and they are both gamers and form Toshiba's response to the various brands most closely associated with the gaming market. The lesser of the two comes with Windows 8 and the higher model, this one, comes with Windows 8.1. Although more up-to-date in that respect, Toshiba continue to use the older NVidia GTX-770M graphics adapter, no mean performer by the standards of its day, but which is now supplanted by the far superior GTX-870M (and the far pricier 880M). There are several gaming machines from MSI, ASUS, AlienWare and even custom builders such as Novatech and PC Specialist that employ either the 870M or 880M NVidia cards to their advantage.

The Qosmio gains with a sleeker, slimmer and lighter design which is therefore more portable although it loses out in some areas of performance. Other features are either very similar or identical to several branded and custom-built machines currently available. On offer here are 4 x USB 3.

It really is wonderful to see a mainstream laptop manufacturer that continues to make a proper gaming laptop that doesn't look like the love-child of a transformer on robo-steroids and an IKEA kitchen, or seems to think that people are impressed by touchscreen gimmicks when all they serve to do is get in the way of gameplay rather than enhance it.

The Laptop itself boasts a top of the range i7 quad core processor and the brilliant NVIDIA Geforce GTX770M Graphics Card at it's heart which allows the laptop to zip through all of the latest games at breakneck speeds. The 256GB Toshiba SSD only serves to further accelerate the performance with boot times of 3-4 seconds, and applications not taking much longer to load. Oddly enough, even the Windows 8.1 isn't too intrusive. The fact this laptop isn't touchscreen is to it's credit, because who want's fingerprints across what is a remarkably crisp and clear display?

The keyboard has also been laid out with gamers in mind, with a short spacebar, arrow keys not crowded by other keys and clear gaps between all others which ensure that in the heat of battle, you don't accidentally leap out of cover and get shot when you were trying to equip your secondary weapon. The Harman Kardon Speakers are brilliant too and well worth a mention.

In summary, this laptop is a triumph, that does everything well and doesn't need to rely on gimmicks so sell itself. Highly recommended.

Fast, great screen, great for games, and compared to other gaming capable laptops its understated. The red keyboard glow and red detailing on the side are the only hint of the power within.

Needed for my son to do his GCSE photoshop. Perfect choice. Amazing start up. Not forgetting how good it looks. The service and communication from Luzern could not be faulted, they helped me in any way they could and went that extra mile. The arrival was brilliant received in 3 days. The courier DHL was great too. I could pick up from their warehouse or have it delivered as they texted me and I could text back! Also texted to say delivery within 1 hr timeframe as they got nearer. All in all a brilliant purchase and delivery.
