    Comments about Toshiba Qosmio X75-A7180 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black Widow):

    We are non profit and had to extensively research laptops that would fit our needs before making such a large purchase. We are do bully prevention presentations in classrooms. We need to use the laptop for our PowerPoint at presentations. We also needed to be able to edit videos. We have shot our own videos to use in our presentations and on YouTube. But our current laptop would freeze during videos (often at presentations!). This one is amazing. It plays all videos with ease. AND it comes with video editing software. The software is has tons of professional features. I was a bit concerned that the software would be too complicated. However, it has been great for us. We absolutely love this laptop and the software! By far the best decision on a purchase I have made for SAY Bully Prevention! We are thrilled. The only thing we could say negative would be the power cord comes out rather easy. Its not super loose though. If you don't move the laptop ,uch while its plugged in, its fine.

    Comments about Toshiba Qosmio X75-A7180 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black Widow):

    I'm in love with this PC, it's really fast and light (for its size). I switched back from mac to pc, mainly due to the price difference. I couldn't afford a mac with the same kind of specs. Though I still prefer mac computers the little differences in build, OS and resolution doesn't justify the price difference. I also got a better graphics and video card for a big price difference. Though the charger and the computer are huge and heavy and the general build feels a bit less reliable and comfortable but I'm still willing to sacrifice it for all the other pros I get.

    Comments about Toshiba Qosmio X75-A7180 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black Widow):

    I knew when I bought it, this has no RJ11. It does come with Windows FAX and Scan s/w but no modem line can be attached.

    The PC is flawless. I use it for business. It is very fast. And, let me say that I had not purchased from B&H before. Very good experience. They shipped it within a couple of hours, and sent me the tracking number. I got it and it was very nicely packed.

    I bought a HP printer which has FAX built-in.

    I use Internet Windows Explorer 11, I bought Microsoft Office 2013 for it, and I have a USB mouse I use. I love that I can turn off the touchpad by touching F5 key.

    Wide keyboard with backlit lettering makes it great to type on. I connected the Wi-Fi easily to my Cisco Router with wireless, and connected the RJ45 to the Ethernet Router/Switch.

    I have connected my Escort radar and Garmin GPS with the camera cable to USB. I have connected my Logitech speaker system. I have connected several different USB drives, memory sticks to get information into the laptop.

    I quickly made following the included software from Toshiba a complete BOOT DISC.

    I never had a Blu-Ray Drive before. I took my CD and they load right in. I had DVD, and I backed up a BOOT DISC both to USB drive and to DVD, which took 3 DVD. This Blu-Ray Drive is sweet, a superset of CD, DVD and Blu-Ray.

    Videos are very sharp. I use no external video output but I do have a HDMI cable to my TV, and this has that output too.

    Everything came right up.

    I have not turned on my Toshiba Tecra All-S3541 since I got this X75-7180 Qosmio, both from Toshiba.

    This screen is larger, and this has Windows 8.1 pre-loaded.

    I bought Norton Suite and added that.

    This laptop does everything I want a laptop to do.

    I have no understanding of gaming laptop. I play no games on it. I use it for work.

    Wonderful.

    I wanted big memory, and big disc space. Try to buy a laptop with Terabyte drive D and another drive C. I will wait while you do that and tell me what a gaming PC, is, ok ?

    Thank you B&H.

    I heartily recommend buying from B&H. I could tell when I was on phone with B&H, that I wanted to do business with B&H, although I never had before.
