Toshiba Qosmio V65 laptop brings Core i5, SpursEngine and Blu-ray to low-res screen
With Toshiba's Core i7-toting Qosmio X500 series laptops starting at a bit over a grand these days, we're not sure how excited we are about the company's new V65 portable PC. Though the former model spun Blu-ray discs into a fine-pixeled 1080p, this new model's SpursEngine-powered content's been relegated to a 1,366 x 768, 15.6-inch backlit screen. While Japanese consumers do get a 2.4GHz Core i5-450M processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 500GB hard drive, plenty of ports and a digital TV tuner for the price, said price is an estimated ¥180,000 -- or about $1,972 in hard US currency if the machine ever comes stateside. A wee bit steep, in our estimation.
