Product Description

Featuring a sleek, streamlined design, the Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV660 notebook PC provides you a powerful media center that you can take anywhere. It features a dazzlingly 17-inch Ultimate TruBrite widescreen display with a stunning 1920 x 1200 resolution and true 1080p high-definition format. The HDMI connection support up to 1080i-resolution HDTV and 5-channel surround sound via a single cable. It runs the powerful Windows XP Media Center operating system, which enables you to save TV programming from the built-in NTSC TV tuner and save shows to the hard drive or burn to DVD via the dual-layer, multi-format DVD burner--which also offers high-definition HD DVD playback. For home theater enjoyment, it includes a 1-bit digital amplifier (normally found in high-end audio systems), Dolby Home Theater surround sound, and built-in Harman Kardon speakers.

This notebook is powered by the Intel Core 2 Duo processor, which offers a 20 percent performance boost over its predecessor while using 28 percent less power--so you get the benefit of a powerful dual-core PC plus all the benefits of mobility. The dual-execution core T7200 Core 2 Duo processor provides an optimized, multithreaded architecture for improved gaming and multitasking performance, and it features a 2.0 GHz speed, lightning quick 667 MHz system bus, and massive 4 MB L2 cache. NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics and GDDR3 memory deliver advanced graphics performance for immersive game play. Other features include dual 120 GB hard drives (for an amazing 240 GB of storage space), 2 GB of installed RAM (4 GB maximum), tri-mode Wi-Fi LAN (802.11a/b/g), Bluetooth connectivity, multi-format memory card reader, fingerprint reader security, and a remote control. This is a Windows Vista capable PC, and its also Windows Vista Premium ready.

The Basics

  • Hard Drive: This notebook has a unique hard drive array for a notebook--two separate 120 GB (5400 RPM) hard drives for a total storage capacity of 240 GB. They can work together to boost performance, particularly when handling large files, and you can use one as an exclusive media drive for saved TV programming and an MP3 library.
  • Processor: The Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 processor has a 2.0 GHz processor speed, super-fast 667 MHz front-side bus (FSB), and an enormous 4 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your systems performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)

    The Intel Core 2 Duo processor has two computational execution cores in a single processor, providing greater system response when running multi-threaded applications simultaneously with no significant increase in power consumption. Its optimized for multitasking and is ready to support the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. It can simultaneously run multiple demanding applications--such as graphics-intensive games or serious number-crunching business productivity applications--while downloading music or running virus-scanning security programs in the background. Some of the advanced Intel innovations of the Core 2 Duo processor include:

    • Smart Memory Access: Improves system performance by hiding memory latency, thus optimizing the use of available computer data bandwidth to provide data to the processor when and where it is needed.
    • Advanced Digital Media Boost: Effectively doubles the execution speed for instructions used widely in multimedia and graphics applications.
    • Dynamic Power Coordination: Coordinates Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology and idle power-management state (C-states) transitions independently per core to help save power.
    • Deeper Sleep with Dynamic Cache Sizing: Saves power by flushing cache data to system memory during periods of inactivity to lower CPU voltage.
  • Memory: The 2 GB of built-in memory (PC5300, DDR2 SDRAM, 2 x 1024 MB) is an excellent start for power users, and it offers a top-of-class 667 MHz speed. It has two memory slots, enabling you to add a maximum of 4 GB to handle immersive 3-D video games, video editing, graphics-intensive presentations, and multiple open business productivity applications.
  • CD/DVD Drive: This Toshiba notebook offers the next generation of DVD entertainment with the HD DVD-ROM optical drive, which provides the superior image and sound quality of high-definition images and multi-channel surround sound as well as backward compatibility with standard DVD movie discs as well as content burned onto DVD-R/RW, DVD-RAM. It also incorporates a multi-format DVD/CD burner, which is compatible with dual-layer (DL) discs that can hold up to 8.5 GB of data. It offers the following write speeds: 2xDVD-R DL, 2.4x DVD+R DL, 4x single-layer DVD-/+R and DVD-/+RW, 3x DVD-RAM, 16x CD-R, 10x CD-RW.
  • Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a standard 85-key keyboard and electro-static two-button touchpad The customizable Dual-mode touch pad that can provide one-tap short cuts to launch e-mail, an Internet browser and other selected programs. It also includes a new fingerprint reader for added security.
Screen, Graphics and Sound
This entertainment-centric notebook has a 17-inch XGA display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and a 16:9 aspect ratio, making it perfect for viewing widescreen format movies. It also provides TruBrite technology, which makes images brighter and more vivid thanks to its anti-glare feature, maximum 350 cd/m2 brightness, 450:1 contrast ratio, and 140-degree horizontal/110-degree vertical viewing angles.

Video is powered by the NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT graphics card, which was chosen by PC World magazine as one of the 100 Best Products of 2006 (July, 2006). It has 256 MB of GDDR3 SDRAM (dynamically allocated shared RAM/video memory) for high definition gaming and home-theater quality video. It features NVIDIAs PureVideo technology--which provides great picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for video content. It also offers full support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 and true high dynamic-range (HDR) lighting. And its ready for the next step in graphics processing--SLI technology (Scalable Link Interface)--which delivers twice the performance of a single GPU configuration by allowing two graphics cards to run in parallel. GDDR3 (Graphics Double Data Rate, version 3) is a graphics card-specific memory technology thats better able to deliver fluid frame rates for even the most advanced games and applications.

A/V Features
The G35-AV660 includes the worlds first 1-bit digital amplifier in a notebook PC--usually found in high-end audio systems. The Dolby Home Theater audio processing delivers a richer, more engaging surround sound experience from stereo and multi-channel audio sources through headphone, built-in Harman Kardon bass reflex stereo speakers, or external 5.1-channel speaker systems. With the QosmioPlayer software, you can use the G35-AV660 like a stand-alone TV, stereo or DVD player, accessing those functions with a quick touch of a button on the laptop without booting up the Windows operating system. You can also pause live TV for 1 to 5 hours (depending on the level of video quality selected). The TV tuner offers standard NTSC definition (720 x 480), closed captioning, parental controls, a 3-D Y/C comb filter, 10-bit analog/digital conversion, and digital noise reduction.
