      Great all around computer. I use it for CNC programing and Cad work. The only area I feel it is a little lacking is the speakers. They should be much louder.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Great service from ABT. Salesman was great, Fast shipping. Will certainly buy from again. Couldn't ask for more.

      Thanks

      Comments about Toshiba Qosmio X500 Series Black Notebook Computer:

      This is, simply, a gorgeous machine. It's got a great display, it looks terrific. It's not a lightweight, but anybody buying an 18.4" display shouldn't really be expecting a netbook. It boots quickly, since Windows is loaded on the SSD.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Nobody had these in stock, including Toshiba Direct, but Abt not only had them but got mine to me in 2 days. Terrific service, well packed, arrived with not just the laptop but the box too in perfect condition.

      Carl C at abt checked and gave me great info on exactly when the laptop could be delivered. He followed up and really took care of business. delivered exactly what they promised. He should be giving lessons to others on great customer service. it really doesn't take that much to go the extra step but makes all the difference in the world. you just need the right attitude and they got the sale. bam!

        I edit and produce video using Adobe Master Collection CS4, which is quite CPU intensive. This laptop provides all the tools for fast and effective editing and production. I highly recommend this model with 6gb RAM and i7 processor.
