    I own an extremely big laptop (ASUS G73JH-X1). I could never find a bag that looked good and functioned properly. Lugging around a 12 lbs laptop with a messenger bag isn’t smart.
    This bag has plenty of room for my laptop and the pocket is lined with what can only be described as dead Muppet fur, which is as luxurious as it sounds. There are plenty individual pockets and all with what reminds me of a massacre on Sesame Street. As graphic as it sounds, my iphone, mouse, power supply, cooling stand, etc. are exquisitely caressed by what appears to be the flesh of Ernie.
    There is even a rain cover to keep it from the elements! An amazing backpack. I don’t know a lot about Everki, but I’m now a life long customer and will recommend this backpack to my friends and family.
    The biggest con is the price, but the simple fact is you pay for expert craftsmanship and, come on, Muppet fur. I think it comes out to about 10% of the price of my laptop so it’s worth it to keep it safe and sound. Looks cool and comfortable to wear. I love this bag.

    After weeks at Staples, MicroCenter, BestBuy and OfficeMax I finally decided to bite the bullet and spend the money for this bag. It fits my M17x like a glove, and carries tons of other stuff to boot (a netbook, a couple notebooks, a cordless mouse, and there’s still room left over. My one complaint is that the shoulder straps are at a slightly wider width than most backpacks (Northface et certa); this was something I got used to in a week or so. Other than that it’s got a stuff picket on the bottom with a waterproof jacket for the outside, I also stuffed a raincoat in there. The laptop compartment is very well padded and has a lining that I am confident would never scratch my machine. If you’ve got a massive laptop it’s definitely the way to go, if I had known how great this backpack was I would have skipped the shopping process and just bought it from day 1.

    I have an ASUS G73JW, a DSLR, Logitech G53 headset, couple of earphones, a Kindle, Sansa, and a bunch of clothes that I carry around with me. After looking around (because I had enough of lugging a duffel bag), I decided to throw in twice the amount of the Targus XL and bought the Everki Beacon.

    I was expecting a huge backpack to arrive but not exactly. It’s actually a pretty decent average size with generous pocket space for all my electronics.

    First thing that strikes you would be, holy crap this thing is really well-made. All my previous laptop backpacks feel flimsy compared to this ruggedness. Definitely well worth the $100 and extra express shipping fees to get it.

    If you’re still pivoting between to buy or not to buy, just buy it. Well worth every penny.

    This review is from: Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7272 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop (Fusion X2 Finish in Red Horizon) (Personal Computers)

    This laptop, with the one of the best intel mobile processors available, one of the best graphic chips available and its fast, huge storage, is the ultimate gaming and entertainment solution. What makes it better than other gaming laptops is, firstly, its relatively reasonable price. It’s probably the best machine $1400 can buy. Secondly, its design is a major advantage. It’s not as monstrous or exaggerated as some other gaming laptops are, but it is just impressive and nice-looking.

    It’s really easy to use once you receive the product, it took 5 minutes of mine to boot and set the computer. It also comes with a good set of software, like Google Chrome or an activated 30-days Norton Internet Security. Furthermore, Toshiba’s own set of software is also very useful. The PC health monitor shows you values like Fan Speed, CPU temperature,Battery Health, power consumption and HDD status.The eco utility gives you a power consumption graph and your “green score”, your energy efficiency.

    Apart from these, the gaming performance of the laptop seems very satisfying. I only had a chance to play Battlefield Bad Company 2 with it, but it was impressive. I set all the settings to the highest value possible and I had 32x antialiasing and 16x vsync, I played on 1600×900 resolution. The game was really fluent in both single and multiplayer modes and the display was really good.

    One of the most important elements of such entertainment and gaming laptops is the audio and I must say the sound system of this laptop is quite satisfying. Toshiba’s long-time partner harman/kardon is a very good sound hardware producer and their laptop speakers are as good as laptop speakers can be. Even though the subwoofer cannot handle high-volume deep-basses really good, still, it is more than enough for gaming and quite pleasing for music. I’m a Pink Floyd fan and even the most complex songs of the band sound really good until VERY high volume levels.

    The keyboard is one of the things I liked the most about the laptop. I’m an apple keyboard fan and I find those keyboards really comfortable and easy to use, but the keyboard of this computer is much better than them. The backlit keys are usable under all conditions and they press so nicely. I wrote a 1400 words long essay with it, during a 3 hours long marathon and it was really comfortable to use this keyboard.

    The mousepad is also very responsive and useful with its multitouch feature. The click keys are a bit noisy, but I prefer tapping and the noise they cause is not a big problem to me.

    The first of my concerns is about the Blu-Ray drive. I just bought a copy of Black Swan and when I inserted the disc, Toshiba Media Player showed up, but it wouldn’t play the disc. So, I opened “Computer” and right clicked the disc, to play with the Corel software. The computer became really slow, windows changed its color scheme to basic and the computer stopped responding for a few minutes. I had to try shutting down through the task manager but then it suddenly started responding again. I ejected and re-inserted the disc and this time,opened it directly with the Corel software. It played flawlessly and without problems. I guess the problem was caused because Corel was running for the first time and I don’t think there are any hardware problems with the computer.

    The second of my concerns, before buying the computer, was about mobility. I of course didn’t expect this to be as portable as a normal 15.6 inches multimedia laptop, but I was afraid it would be too heavy and large. It wasn’t. Of course it is heavy, of course it is large, but it’s also quite portable. I used it several times on my lap and it was very comfortable. It never got hot and didn’t feel so heavy.

    When using on a table, size became an advantage as the bigger display, combined with the good graphics card created a great visual experience. Also the fact that the laptop is thicker on its battery, giving it a ramp-like form when it’s on a table. This is sometimes classified as a design flaw but I think it’s an advantage. It makes the keys face you making writing much more comfortable and it also makes the speakers face you, augmenting the sound. One more advantage of this is that it helps cooling the laptop. This is very important because one of the potential problems of high performance gaming is that the computer may become really hot. This computer doesn’t.

    After all, I can say that I really love this computer. It excels in nearly all categories. It satisfies me with all its features and makes me glad I have bought this one. I have known Toshiba computers for their durability and stability, and I am sure this future-proof computer, with its components like the Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0′ won’t fail me or my gaming experience for the next few years.

    Even if you are not a gamer but only some one looking for a…

    This review is from: Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7272 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop (Fusion X2 Finish in Red Horizon) (Personal Computers)

    The funny thing about this laptop is that it was the first one I picked. I wanted an affordable gaming laptop with a lot of frills (such as a blu-ray drive) good video card, processor, large hard drive space so on and so forth. I estimated my price range based around this and I kept searching for that slightly better deal after searching I could not find another laptop that I would have liked better without sacrificing one or more features that had this laptop already sold at first glance.

    First and foremost I have dealt with Toshiba laptops before and though I would often say that brand doesn’t matter (though some disagree) one thing I cannot argue against is that the Qosmio series of laptops have always been good (despite some of their older models being horrendously ugly).

    The first thing to notice was the audio. It sports Harman/Kardon speakers. “What does that mean?” you might ask, well it means that it has speakers that are known for high quality. The great thing about the speakers is that they’re loud, more than audible in a noisy room. This is great, I was excited about this. Since I first started dealing (at one point I was selling at an electronics store) with Toshiba laptops I always swore by the audio quality of their internal speakers. The audio is more than satisfying even for someone like me. Side note: I did not pay much mind to this until I was actually taking a good look at the laptop but it does have a built in sub woofer on the bottom. I did notice that it did have a good bass kick to it. Nothing a full sized sub woofer can pump out, but it is certainly a plus because it breaks off that nasty “tinny” sound you would get from normal small laptop speakers.

    The second thing to notice (this should probably be first) is the case itself. The design is actually pretty sleek. It is a red and dark gray, (almost black) glossy, textured finish. The top of it clearly says “Qosmio” in shining red letters, the top also having a textured pattern giving it a nice feel that also extends to the inside where it helps to keep finger prints from showing up all over the place. The keyboard is pretty basic, I wouldn’t say that it is special but exactly what I expected. The thing to pay attention to is that it is backlit with red LEDs. This actually looks fantastic and it has settings to toggle it on, off, and on with each keystroke for 1 second after (meaning it shuts down 1 second after you tap a key).

    I did watch a blu-ray movie with the pre-installed Corel software and was pleased with the results. The screen is crystal clear, bright, however it has to be viewed from a proper viewing angle otherwise you get that photo-negative effect where black becomes white, so on and so forth. This is where the audio came in big time, it was perfectly audible and I was able to comfortable enjoy the movie without messing with the volume at all.

    Now then, to get more technical, after all this is a gaming laptop.

    I did a benchmark on Lost Planet 2 and I hammered this laptop hard. I cranked up all of the settings (32x Anti-Aliasing, full Direct x11 effects) and averaged 20FPS (it did dip pretty low when things got hairy, though). All in all, that is an amazing result for a laptop at this price. However, in order to play it comfortably with decent frame rates (as the DX11 effects and high anti-aliasing did not seem to impact the performance that much) I would recommend keeping them both off as it averaged over 30FPS making it playable.

    I wanted to run more benchmarks but I do not have any Dx11 games other than Lost Planet 2. I did however (when plugged into an external monitor/TV at 1920×1080) with all settings maxed, Physx on normal, and Anti Aliasing at 2x, experience good frame rates in Batman: Arkham Asylum (I ran around 45-47FPS, this was NOT in the benchmark test though, I was just playing the game)

    The immediate problem with this is: The laptop got really hot and I do mean REALLY hot. When I first considered this laptop I was deeply concerned about the levels of heat it would disperse (by disperse, I mean burn into my groin area) during normal operation. The good news is that during normal operation the laptop (and power brick) actually stayed very cool. On the flip side is that it did indeed get really hot during any gaming. I would recommend a lap desk/fan/cooler/doohickey for gaming, just for comfort, really.

    Other notes: the laptop does transfer audio via HDMI if you plug it into a television supporting HDMI. It is heavy, and large, but that is to be expected, it’s 17.3 inches. The battery life is pretty on the weak side, but as mentioned, it is a gaming laptop. For anyone who intends to not have access to AC power I would recommend picking up a 12-cell battery, if available.

    Bottom line: It isn’t perfect, but it did not disappoint one bit. It has a plethora of great features and is not…

    By 
    Amazon Verified Purchase(http://www.amazon.com/gp/community-help/amazon-verified-purchase/183-3883215-4030141', ‘AmazonHelp’, ‘width=400,height=500,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,toolbar=0,status=1′);return false; “>What’s this?)
    This review is from: Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7272 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop (Fusion X2 Finish in Red Horizon) (Personal Computers)

    I was weary about buying a Toshiba because my father has a satellite that is junker (although its AMD based, go figure).
    However based on the specs and other reviews I decided to pick this baby up.
    I cant say I’m disappointed at all.

    Build Quality -
    The entire computer is built out of plastic, however it doesnt feel cheap or flimsy, its a good quality of plastic and feels really solid.
    The paint and texture have a nice feel and dont attract finger prints which is good.

    The screen assembly is pretty solid, the hinges are sturdy and appear they will last a good while if taken care of.

    The Fusion X2 finish is nice, most gaming laptops come with very obnoxious designs and bright and annoying colors and lights everywhere.
    The Qosmio however has a nice sleek and elegant paint job, the red accents are shiny and chrome-like but not too shiny. it just feels like a more grown-up laptop compared to the previous gen Qosmios.

    Keyboard-
    I really really like the keyboard, there is barely any flex at all, even if you push hard, it feels nice and sturdy. The keys are very nice, tactile, and quiet – they feel great while typing.
    The backlighting is fantastic, evenly lit across every key, with just the right amount of brightness. More keyboards need to be like this one.
    My only concern was that that space bar is shorter in length that most standard keyboards, so I found myself pressing the right alt key sometimes when trying to press the spacebar. It’s just a matter of getting used to it.
    Also, having the full numeric keypad on the keyboard is really nice as well. I thought I wouldn’t use it initially but I actually use it quite a bit.

    A note to buyers about the keyboard – the backlighting settings have to be changed in the BIOS, which is kind of annoying but at least they’re there.
    It can be set to be always on, off, or on a timer which you can set. I set mine to turn the back lighting off after 30 seconds of inactivity.

    Screen-
    The screen is not terrible, but it definitely could be better. The colors dont pop out like most HD screen do, and the overall picture quality comes across as bland. You can fiddle around with the intel graphics settings to get it looking a little better though.
    Also when you look closely at the screen, especially in areas where there are solid bright colors (red, white, green, ect) you can see the tiny lines in the LCD panel which can be off putting at times.
    The viewing angle is kind of bad too, while looking dead on, the top left/right corners get dark. Then if you angle it to eliminate that, the bottom get washed out. It only looks perfect if you view from a distance and head on – which is fine for watching movies but not much else.
    1600×900 res is OKAY, but it really should have been a 1080p screen to go along with the other specs of this laptop. I would have gladly payed another 100$ or so for that option.

    Hardware-
    This thing is a powerhouse, a GTX560 card with an i7 CPU cannot be beat. It has run every game I’ve thrown at it so far on nearly maximum settings.
    Tons of hard drive space, it has a total of 1TB of space, with two drives. However I am confused as to why they did not include a RAID controller with this setup. Most other gaming computers that come with two drives come in RAID 0, however this did not, and I do not see any BIOS settings to enable it, so I’m assuming that it just doesn’t have the ability to do RAID.
    Having a blu-ray drive is awesome too, now I can bring my movies anywhere instead of just watching them on my PS3.

    Touchpad-
    The included touchpad is a synaptics device, and it shares the texture with the rest of the palm rest, which at times can be easy to lose your finger on the edges because it feels the same – again just another thing to get used to, its not really that bad.
    It’s decently sized, supports multitouch scrolling and gestures, and works well enough.
    The left and right click buttons feel cheap and the clicking noise they make really loud for some reason.
    There is an illuminated LED strip at the top of the pad which makes it easy to find in the dark.

    Sound-
    The Harman/Kardon speakers are pretty good, the subwoofer actually works pretty well, you can really hear and feel the bass coming out of it.
    The overall volume of the laptop doesnt get super loud (dont plan on it being able to entertain a party with music) and it desperately needs an equalizer – there doesnt seem to be any kind of extra sound software included.
    Overall though, its really good for a laptop, you can watch movies and play games and you dont have to turn it up much passed 1/3.

    Battery Life-
    Like the other reviews said, it’s bad. No getting around it.
    Just in the time I’ve taking to write this review it’s gone…
