Toshiba's latest Qosmio X770 to offer high-end specs and will cater to demanding users, including gamers.

Toshiba has today launched its latest 17.3in Qosmio desktop replacement notebook, the X770. It's designed to be a multimedia powerhouse with support for 3D video, Blu-ray playback and high-end gaming.

In a press release today, Toshiba's Anthony Geronimo said that the Qosmio X770 is "engineered for extreme gaming with the power, performance and style to win any contest" and that "it can deliver a truly immersive gameplay experience for consumers". It should be able to live up to these lofty expectations considering its high-end configuration.

The X770 will be powered by a Second Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core CPU, 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M graphics card with 1.5GB of RAM, Optimus switching technology and 3D VISION. The new Qosmio X770 will also feature a hybrid hard drive/SSD and will have up to 1.25TB of storage space via a two drive configuration.

It will have a recommended retail price of $2699 in Australia, although a similar model in the US costs $1899.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
