Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV600 17-inch With Intel Core Duo Processor T2400
Featuring a sleek, streamlined design, the Toshiba Qosmio G35-AV600 notebook PC provides you a powerful media center that you can take anywhere. It runs the powerful Windows XP Media Center operating system, which enables you to save TV programming from the built-in TV tuner and save shows to the hard drive or burn to DVD via the dual-layer, multi-format DVD burner. 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.

It's powered by Intel's new, groundbreaking processor--the powerful Core Duo T2400--which provides an optimized, multithreaded architecture for improved gaming and multitasking performance and a more efficient power consumption. The dual execution core T2400 has a 1.83 GHz processor speed and 2 MB L2 cache. It also features a wide-screen 17-inch display, two 80 GB hard drives (for a 120 GB total), 1 GB of DDR2 RAM, 54g wireless connectivity, and an integrated TV tuner.

The Basics :
  • Hard Drive: The G35-AV600 has a unique hard drive array for a notebook--two separate 80 GB (5400 RPM) hard drives for a total storage capacity of 160 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 Duo T2400 processor is built with the Mobile Intel 945PM Express chipset, and it has a 1.83 GHz processor speed, super-fast 667 MHz front-side bus (FSB), and large 2 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)

The Intel Core 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. It's optimized for multitasking and is ready to support the next version of Microsoft Windows, code-named Vista. 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. It's more efficient, thanks to Intel's Power Coordination and Deeper Sleep, which help to transfer power only to those areas of the processor that need it. It also features Intel's Digital Media Boost, which delivers enhanced performance on floating point-intensive applications such as CAD tools, 3D and 2D modeling, video editing, digital music, digital photography and gaming.

  • Memory: The 1 GB of built-in memory (PC4200, DDR2 SDRAM, 2 x 512 MB) is a very good start for power users, and it offers a top-of-class 533 MHz speed. It has two memory slots, enabling you to add a maximum of 4 GB to handle immersive 3D video games, video editing, graphics-intensive presentations, and multiple open business productivity applications.
  • CD/DVD Drive: The double-layer DVD drive is compatible with a wide range of formats, including both DVD+RW and DVD-RW discs, CD-RW discs, and dual-layer DVD+R discs, which can hold up to 8.5 GB of data--great for backing up your MP3 collection. It features the following speeds: 2.4x DVD+R-DL, 2x DVD-R DL, 8x/4x for both DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW, and 24x/16x for CD-R/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.

A/V Features :
The G35-AV600 includes the world's 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 multichannel 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-AV600 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. The TV tuner offers standard NTSC definition (720 x 480), closed captioning, parental controls, a 3D Y/C comb filter, and digital noise reduction.

It also offers a 700:1 contrast ratio and has 140-degree horizontal and 120-degree vertical viewing angles.

Video and graphics are powered by Nvidia's midrange GeForce Go 7300 GPU with 256 MB of dedicated memory. It features NVidia's PureVideo technology--which provides great picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for video content--and full support for Microsoft DirectX 9.0 for stunningly realistic cinematic effects for all DirectX-compatible applications. It also has an integrated audio card that provides 16-bit stereo sound, a built-in microphone, and a volume control dial.
