Aside from my purpose built Rhino Tower…
I am considering getting a replacement laptop to my Toshiba Qosmio G20-115 I sometimes use after it now has developed a cooling issue.
What can you recommend ? not current model though, as I am not after win8 unless I can load 7 onto it.
Win XP or 7 but not 8. (XP best OS and I shall miss it, win explorer in 7 is a nightmare, and 8 can go take a running jump ! )
Mine has a nice quality 17inch screen where black is black, well almost…
Toshiba TruBrite WXGA+ TFT display 1440 x 900 res
Its a bright TFT display, not sure if that is standard practice now, a few yrs ago this was eye candy. Its the thing that still pleases me when I turn it on. Other standard lappys look poor compared to this beast. Its solid and feels really well built.
Somewhat low on specs compared to current standards though. 128Mb ram Nvidia Go 6600 vid card and not apparently swoppable., being soldered in ? certainly on the 108 model.
2.13GHz and 2Gb ram and thats max ram
Importantly Must be virtually silent running !.…this isnt. noise is not something manufacturers design for and its spoilt this one. Expensive kit then spoilt with cheap fans that get noisy in time.
