New laptop

Hello everyone. I am looking for a new laptop to use with audio and video recording and editing.

The one I am really moving towards is the Toshiba Qosmio X505. It seems to have it all other than the dual head video card (which I don't know if it's a big deal yet. I have 2 monitors on the desktop).

I know it's a heavy laptop, but that does not matter.

Has anyone had any experience with this laptop? Can you suggest other laptops in the same league?

Thank you all

I,m a big fan of Toshibas. Have been rock solid in the time I,ve used them for recording onsite.

If I had the money I,d certainly think about getting the top end Toshiba....but thats me for me doing my things.

The Qosmio is the top of the line, AFAIK. The only negative I see id the lack of a dual monitor video card.

a few comments

you dont want a quad core you want the 640m dual core. faster ghz means better performance over the quad.

what interface? firewire you will be lucky to get to work.

For now it's a USB interface. Mostly I will be doing video editing and some audio work.
