Toshiba has revealed an update to its Qosmio X875 laptop at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.
The 17.3in mobile giant will be available from February with a hybrid storage option comprising a standard 1TB mechanical hard disk, complemented by 8GB of on-board NAND flash memory designed to act as a cache and, claims Toshiba, reduce application load times.
The rest of the machine remains unchanged, with a powerful Core i7 processor, up to 32GB of RAM and a vast 17.3in display running at 1,920 x 1,080.
Graphical performance is courtesy of Nvidia’s GeForce GTC 630M, and stereoscopic 3D is available as an option. The out-there styling, complete with red accents around the trackpad, is also untouched.
The hybrid storage X875 will be available in the United States from February, priced at around £1,000. UK availability is yet to be announced.
