What is it? The Toshiba Qosmio!
If you are in the market for a new laptop that is filled with features then you might want to check out Doug Goldring’s look at the Toshiba Qosmio over at Gear Diary. The second of a two part series, Doug Goldring has done a nice job in sharing his experience with this feature packed laptop. If you missed his initial first look when it first arrived, you can see Part 1 here
So what did Doug have to say? Well he attacked his review the way I like to see it done. Not all technical stuff but rather a first person look giving HIS impressions. I like that because you can get a better feel for the experience.
The Qosmio is decidedly NOT the MacBook Air. In fact, I would call it the “anti-Air”. Is that a bad thing? Not at all. Taken together, the Air and the Qosmio really highlight the difference between mobility and portability. Mobility offers the opportunity to access your data from anywhere at anytime; often at the cost of usability or other functions. Portability allows you to carry everything you need from point A to point B, even if you cannot easily access that data before reaching point B.
In the final analysis, Doug said “If you are looking for a computer that you can take anywhere, then this is probably not the computer for you” but then he added “if you are looking for a full featured desktop replacement which can travel when you travel, and be wherever you need it, then this is absolutely the computer you need”. He did nice job presenting this powerful computer …. check it out here
