Once again Toshiba not releasing the Qosmio with ATI's Radeon based graphics. This reason alone makes me turn away from the Qosmio line. Lack of choice is the issue.

Toshiba hasnt done any gaming laptops with ATi/AMD GPUs for quite a while (if they ever did at all) so i dont think it makes any difference. Toshiba most likely Nvidia Exclusive.

Most of other manufacturers are not outing Radeon graphics card this season either, since that Nvidia remembered to rebadge their cards and AMD forgot ...
