Toshiba intros Blu-ray-equipped Qosmio X500

By on September 23, 2009, 5:28 PM
Toshiba has introduced the Qosmio X500 gaming laptop, which is one of the company's first Blu-ray-equipped products to market. The X500 is perfectly suited for desktop replacement, with its 18.4" 1080p HD display, 2.8GHz Intel Core i7, up to 8GB of DDR3 1066MHz RAM, and a 1GB Nvidia GeForce GTS 250MNV.

Additional specifications include up to 1TB of HDD space (dual 500GB 5400RPM drives), a Blu-ray writer, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, three USB 2.0 ports that can charge mobile devices when the laptop is off, one USB/eSATA combo port, and five-in-one card reader. I couldn't find how heavy the X500 is, but it's obviously no featherweight -- just something to keep in mind.
A price hasn't been disclosed yet, but it's fair to assume that it won't be cheap. Toshiba is preparing to launch their new desktop replacement in the UK late next month -- which is around the time that Windows 7 will debut.

That's some amazing hardware for a laptop. And no kidding it won't be cheap. I'm guessing around $4k.

If that rendering is accurate it looks like it'll have a carbon fiber wrist rest and more. That's a nice touch.

I have just purchased this laptop and await it's arrival, can you add another hard drive?
