Toshiba Qosmio X300 Looks Badass, Plays Nice (We Hope)

qosmiox300.jpgIf you thought the Acer Predator gaming desktop looked powerful, then you’ll love the design of Toshiba’s new Qosmio X300.

According to Toshiba, this is Toshiba’s “fastest and most powerful notebook to date”, and comes with the latest components, including an Intel Core 2 Duo processor T9400, two hard drives (200GB and 320GB), 4GB DDR3 RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTX graphics card, Harman Kardon speakers and a heap of connections.

It naturally comes with Vista Ultimate, its 17-inch screen has a 1680 x 1050 resolution and it weighs in at 4.16kg.

There’s a heap more specs after the jump if you’re interested. Me, I just like to look at it. The $3,999 price tag isn’t cheap, but gosh-darnit that fire-engine red looks purty. Makes me want to go and buy a fast car.
