Toshiba has had an excellent IFA 2011 in Germany, partly due to its impressive Toshiba Portege Z830 Ultrabook. Now it hopes to wow with the Qosmio DX730UK - a powerful and highly stylish entertainment centre with touchscreen control.

Looking like a good choice for multimedia enthusiasts who want high power from a versatile machine, the Qosmio DX730 succeeds in providing fast performance in a highly-compact design - looking not dissimilar to Toshiba Regza TVs.

Powered by the latest-generation of Intel processors you'll get i3 and i5 options, the Qosmio DX730 should be capable of some decent performance. Up to 6GB of memory provides the power to run demanding programmes simultaneously, such as HD video content or process-heavy image or video editing suites. Whilst a HDD storage up to 1TB also offers a huge amount of space for saving numerous HD video files, music libraries, and large directories of digital images.

The Qosmio DX730 combines a next- generation touchscreen interface with wireless keyboard and mouse control. The 23-inch Full HD display should be good for high definition gaming, and an integrated Blu-ray drive on selected models means movies won't look out of place either.

The nice visuals are in good company with some decent audio tech from Onkyo, as the Qosmio DX730's stereo speakers and a powerful subwoofer are designed by the company.

a 1.3MP webcam is a nice addition, and the the connectivity is comprehensive with four USB 2.0 inputs two additional USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI-in port.

The Toshiba Qosmio DX730 will be available during Q4 2011.
