Qosmio X305-Q705 opinions?

The person that gave me the gift says they went to BB and asked for the most powerful gaming laptop they had and this is what they gave her. Kind of hard to believe, but it's BB...Overall it's pretty badass, I like the flames on it and the feel of it its just that the processor speed and graphic card is worrying to me because I plan on gaming a LOT (TF2, Oblivion, Far Cry2, Fallout 3, etc...) and I need this thing to keep up for a while. Would overclocking be enough or should I try to find a 706 or something?

Are Toshiba's easy to overclock? That wouldn't be a bad idea if they are--only problem is there's probably not much you can do for heat in a laptop other than whatever cooling is stock, so I doubt you can take the CPU too high.
In any case, I don't think TF2 will have problems with your setup. The "benchmark" games I'm not so sure about.

Im downloading demos for a few games Id install on here If I keep this thing. If its too bad, then Ill wipe this thing clean and take it back to best buy just to upgrade for a better model.

If you're exchanging it for something bigger and nastier, I doubt BB will give you any shit about the return. Probably wise to do if you want to get some mileage out of it.

I just don't see this laptop being able to game new releases 2-3 years from now. Even if you stepped up to the 706 with the p8400 processor.
You could try running a 3dmark to see how it stands. But if you aren't happy with how it handles fallout 3, it's only going to get worse.

I don't know. I guess im just really hesitant to let the Qosmio go since it was a gift and I like it's look. Final question: the Qosmio x305-705 or the Gateway FX P-7805u?

That's one hell of a gift, though. A $1,000 present? Jeez. If I received such a generous gift I'd feel pretty bad about exchanging it.. I'd feel like it sent a "I don't like it" message to the giver.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.
