So, I bought the Qosmio X305 over the Gateway. Well I got the laptop before the new Gateway came out. All is well, the laptop does wonders when playing WoW or AOE3. I've maxed out the graphics on AOE3, well the important ones anyway. Like the particles, shadow, texture, and etc. The laptop did most of it's job.
The game was doing well until midway, when the computers and my friends have massive armies charging at each other. That's when I started lagging and getting hiccups. Guess it can't run on max settings as well as I hoped it would. So, I lowered the settings a little. Texture and particles I kept High. Shadow, and shaders I kept on low. The game ran great after that.
My only qualm with the laptop is the LCD screen. The colors are so pale! I like warm colors. Machina thinks there's nothing wrong with it except that the colors are more blue. I like colors that are warm not pale and cole. I've tried adjusting the gamma, contrast, brightness, digital vibrance, and everything else that the nvidia control panel has to offer, but to no avail. Colors are still too pale and cold. It is a strain on my eyes.
So, now I'm tempted to sell this Toshiba and go with Gateway which has a better LCD screen, better CPU, better video card, and more gamma colors.
