Qosmio X70


With a Full HD, 1920 x 1080 resolution display with LED backlight, the Qosmio X70 delivers an immersive visual experience for action-packed films, games and online content. The large 43.9 cm (17.3”) 300 NIT display ensures optimum picture quality at all times and a vibrant brightness for clear detail and bright colours. The Qosmio X70’s visual excellence is complemented by harman/kardon speakers, exclusive to Toshiba, for an impactful sound and a premium audio experience. Complete with DTS Sound enhancement for volume boost, enhanced bass and improved definition, the speakers are all set for epic entertainment.

The Qosmio X70 is packed full of features that enhance the laptop’s performance, enabling users to power through tasks with ease such as editing videos and photos, or playing games. The integrated AMD Radeon R9 M265X graphics with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM support offers faster bandwidth and helps boosts performance. AMD Enduro™ technology, intelligently optimises the device providing an outstanding graphics performance, while helping to extend battery life. The Qosmio X70 also has an Intel Quad Core i7 processor to aid the completion of multiple tasks simultaneously providing visibly smart performance at its best and built in visuals for a better PC experience. Users have plenty space to save all of their games, films and files comfortably with the choice of up to 2TB HDD or 1TB SSHD support.

Fully loaded with a wide range of entertainment features, the Qosmio X70 enables users to get the very best out of their favourite films, games and media files. Ultra HD support via HDMI allows output to a compatible Ultra HD TV to display 4k to a larger group. Two full-size USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports provide fast connections to a wide range of external devices while Intel WiDi lets users play all the things they love – including movies, videos, photos and music – via a compatible TV completely free from wires. The integrated Blu-ray BD-RE (XL) drive allows the playback of HD movies on the go and to store files safely with a disc capacity up to 100 GB. Photos and other multimedia files can be moved between devices via the Bridge Media UHS-II supported SD card slot which enables increased productivity with higher data transfer speeds.

The Qosmio X70 has a precious dark silver finish with matt red highlights, for a striking and strong, yet stylishly elegant, design. In addition, the laptop’s backlit tiled frameless keyboard illuminates with a red glow for use in low light environments while its large clickpad features gesture support helping users stay in control – whatever entertainment they’re enjoying.

Satellite P70


The Satellite P70 is an ideal large screen desktop replacement and shares many of the Qosmio X70’s features, making it ideal for entertainment, productivity and multi-tasking in everyday use. The brushed, stylish Satin Gold finish provides an elegant design while its durable aluminum body means that it can stand up to life on the move.
