Toshiba Satellite P50t Ultra HD 4K laptop heads new line-up
Toshiba has just made known all the important details about its flagship 4K Satellite P50t that was first revealed at CES 2014. This new laptop leads the way for a bunch of fresh Satellites.
Needless to say the most exciting news is the full disclosure of the Ultra HD-packing Satellite P50t laptop, which is Toshiba’s very first 4K lappy.
Well, when I say full disclosure, there has been no mention of how much the P50t, or any of the other new Satellite laptops, will cost.
The Satellite P50t does sound like a decent machine though considering it has been squeezed in to a 377.5 x 244 x 27.9 mm, 2.2kg package.
All eyes will be on the 282 pixel per inch 3840 x 2160, 15.6-inch touchscreen which is pushed along by a 2GB AMD Radeon R9 M265 graphics chip.
It’s certainly not lacking elsewhere on the spec sheet either as the P50t is packing an Intel Core-i7 CPU, 16GB DDR3L RAM, 4 USB 3.0 ports, an SD/SDHC slot, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac WiFi and Windows 8.1.
What I was surprised to see amongst all this cutting-edge tech is the 1TB mechanical disk option. Surely, especially in a laptop, a SSD would be more appropriate?
Rounding off the P50t’s particulars is the aluminium clamshell casing and chrome accents and frameless, LED-backlit keyboard.
Availability is listed as sometime in Q2
Joining the P50t is a number of other laptops, starting with the 19.9 mm thin, full brushed metal finished Toshiba Satellite S50 (15.6-inch, 2.08 kg) and S70 (17-inch, 2.7 kg) laptops. These sport 720p, 900p or 1080p displays with optional touch, and use either Intel HD or AMD’s Radeon R9 discreet graphics.
Except for fewer USB 3.0 ports (two instead of four), the CPU and other features are the same as the P50t without the Ultra HD factor.
The Satellite C50/C70 and L50/L70 models round out the new range, each of which is available in 15.6-inch and 17-inch models.
The L50/L70 boasts a 1920 x 1080 resolution, while the 15.6-inch C50 is equipped with a 1366 x 768 screen and the 17-inch C70 goes as far as 1600 x 900 (touch is optional for most models).
Depending on the size and model, you can get Intel Core-i7 or AMD chips, between 8-16GB RAM max, and up to a 1TB hybrid SSD and Blue-ray drives.
Options-wise, there’s waaaaaay too many to list here but I have linked to the press releases for each model in the body of the article if you’re looking to get down and dirty with the details.
