No longer is a desktop necessary to get the kind of power required to run the latest software, laptops like the Toshiba Qosmio X770 can survive even the toughest of gaming trials.

The Qosmio boasts a specs sheet that puts many desktops to shame, including an i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a GeForce GTX 560M with 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory.

As if the internals weren't enough, also included is a proper 17.3 inch full HD 3D display with integrated IR emitter to link up glasses. Keeping things cutting edge in the sound department is a set of Harman Kardon speakers, ensuring complete audio visual immersion whilst gaming or watching movies. The Blu-ray player included is also capable of re-writing discs and even playing back 3D movies. There is also a 3D webcam for those who fancy a bit of 3D video chat.

Lag has been kept to a minimum for the most fussiest of gamers, with just a 5ms response time and a 120Hz refresh rate on the laptop's display.

A clever 500GB solid state hybrid drive keeps the laptop booting up quickly whilst another 500GB drive holds media and data. 

Design-wise the Qosmio maintains the gamer look, opting for multiple flashing lights, red keyboard backlighting and a textured lid. USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 keep everything connected to the laptop running as quickly as possible.

Expect pricing when the laptop hits store shelves in July later this year.
