Toshiba Qosmio X500 for US

Quickly following the UK release, Toshiba has brought out an American version of the Qosmio X500. The 18.4-inch desktop replacement notebook is the PC builder's first to use a Core i7 processor and revolves around the 1.6GHz quad-core chip's added power for games and movies. It similarly comes with a 1GB GeForce GTS 250M for video. The 1080p display is stock, though for the US release Toshiba notes that not every model will have a Blu-ray drive.

The subtler redesign is intact and brings a thinner profile as well as Harman Kardon speakers and an HDMI output with CEC support for remote control between itself and compatible home theater equipment.

Full specifications and prices will be available on October 13th, but Toshiba provided a clue that the X500 will ship with Windows 7 as it expects the system to ship both online and in stores on October 22nd, the same day as the new Microsoft OS goes on sale.
