Well I just received me Qosmio x775-Q7272 laptop and I thought I would give my initial impressions of the build quality. It is as far as I can tell completely constructed out of plastics but that is not entirely bad... The base of the laptop feels very sturdy to me, I put a little forces on each side and I did not notice it bending at all. There also does not seem to be any keyboard flex unless I push hard enough to break something which I do not plan on doing. The Screen portion is less sturdy and it can flex but I do not plan on finding out its limits. I also like the keys themselves, they are smooth and I like how they feel and they don't press down too deep which I also think of as another plus. The touch pad was more responsive than I was expecting and I have had to adapt a little, moving my finger considerably less than on my old hp pavilion laptop to move the cursor the same distance. The buttons on the touch pad click rather loudly but I prefer to tap the pad so I do mind it and some may enjoy the feedback. One thing I really like is how light this laptop feels to me. I had an Envy 17 for a few days and this thing feels considerably lighter (to me). I think an important thing to mention is the height of this laptop. If they haven't changed it yet, Toshiba states the height of this laptop to be like 1.2-1.4 inches when all actuality it is 1.2-2.4 inches. This is because the standard battery (the 8 cell) sticks down from the laptop an extra inch and who is going to carry around their laptop without the battery? (sorry if you do but?) Another thing I need to add, the speakers are GREAT. Really they are, I have them up all the way and there is NO distortion/crackling. The little baby sub on the bottom of the laptop is really more of a gimmick than a real sub (like any sub on a laptop I think?...) but I do feel some vibrations coming from it on lower notes and it is definitely adding something to the sound. I am also in no way disappointed with the 1600x900 display. If nobody had told me this could have been a 1080p but I suppose I don't really have an eye for that stuff. It gets plenty bright for my usage and nice and dim when the lights are out. Sorry about all of the picture's quality, I broke my digital camera so I used my phone and as you will soon see, the pictures aren't great. Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler I will add more things as I use the laptop more and feel free to ask questions I will answer anything that I can. I will also try to get some pictures up later.
