Qosmio: worth the cash?

Is a Toshiba Qosmio Laptop F20-136 worth the money?

I am seriously considering purchasing one as the chance to have Freeview digital tv is a big plus for me. I just want to know if there is anything to be wary of with these machines and whether I should go for something else a little less flashy but better under the bonnet.

I have seriously thought about an Ibook but have given up as it doesnt link with either my mobile phone or my mp3 player Creative zen.

Any ideas? its a lot of cash for me so dont want to end up with a duffer.

skimming the toshiba site, they don't list an f20, so maybe that model is now discontinued (in which case you may be able to push for a lower price) (or maybe the toshiba site doesn't show all the models).

Have you taken your mobile phone and mp3 player down to an Apple Store and had the geeks try to get them connected to an iBook? I can't see why this wouldn't work, especially for the mp3 player.

Yeah, you just kind of plug in the USB MP3 player and use it as normal, like any Windows machine. If you gave even the slightest bit more information, like a phone model, someone here may even be able to verify (positively or not) the iSyncability of it.
