Toshiba had launched the new Qosmio F55 laptop series, a 15.4-inch powerhouse that leverages both the Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and NVIDIA GPUs with built-in GPS to provide an unsurpassed performance in terms of multimedia, gaming and mobile convenience. Here is more info:
Through the combined strength of Intel's next-generation processor technology and the NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GTS graphics card, the Qosmio F55 with GPS is amply built for performance and power. The NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GTS provides users with the ability to navigate through today's latest DirectX 10 games by providing razor-sharp graphic details and intricacies.
A unique feature on the Qosmio F55 laptop series is its GPS system powered by Garmin. Freeing users from the need of an Internet connection, the built-in GPS system allows users to determine their exact location within moments, as well as search for directions to millions of locations.
Incorporating the all-new Fusion finish with Vibe pattern, the Qosmio F55's chassis is built around a stunning 15.4-inch diagonal widescreen TruBrite high-definition display. To further enhance the visual experience, the Qosmio F55 sports two premium Harman Kardon stereo speakers, one subwoofer and Dolby Home Theater technology, allowing users to experience their content in both virtual and true surround sound environments. The Qosmio can be seamlessly integrated into a user's home theater system for a complete surround sound experience thanks to its REGZA LINK HDMI technology, while empowering users with simultaneous instant device configuration and the ability to control REGZA LINK enabled devices, such as Toshiba's REGZA HDTVs and Qosmio laptops, with a single remote.
As an added convenience, each Qosmio F55 features Sleep-and-Charge USB ports, which allow users to charge popular mobile devices such as MP3 players, mobile phones and PDAs at any moment, whether the laptop is powered-on, off or in hibernation mode. One of the Sleep-and-Charge ports also doubles as an eSATA port, which enables the transfer of data and multimedia files to and from an external hard drive at speeds up to five times faster than standard USB 2.0.
Additionally, the TOSHIBA Face Recognition software harnesses the Qosmio's built-in Webcam to grant or deny access to the laptop based on a series of recorded images of the user's face.
The Qosmio brand has long been defined by its strong multimedia features, and the Qosmio F55 series is no exception. The Qosmio F55 series sports a DVD SuperMulti Drive that supports 11 different media formats. Additionally, the optical drive is Labelflash enabled, which makes it possible to burn images and labels directly onto a Labelflash DVD-R disc for a polished, professional finish. For the first time, Toshiba will offer users the option of configuring their laptops to run either a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows Vista, depending on a user's preference and intended computer use.
