Toshiba recently announced their latest laptop – the Toshiba Satellite P50t, perfect for visual creative professionals and multimedia enthusiasts, it offers outstanding levels of portable picture quality, delivering true-to-life image production alongside a premium mobile entertainment experience. The latest Satellite P50t is powered by a 4th generation Intel Core processor with AMD Radeon R9 M265X as its discrete graphics processor. It also features a 15.6-inch display, either in a 4K screen of 3840×2160 resolution or 1920×1080 full HD resolution. Check out its features and specifications below.
UPDATE: It’s now available! Check out pricing and availability below. Also there is a video review for your reference.
On the Toshiba Satellite P50t’s 15.6″ (39.6 cm) Ultra HD display, every detail is shown with crystal-clear definition and houses four times as many pixels as a Full HD screen featuring 282 PPI (pixels per inch) resulting in smoother imagery, and an astounding level of detail. The display allows for higher resolutions and wider viewing angles meaning photographers, graphic designers and entertainment enthusiasts can create, review and playback to an exceptional professional standard from anywhere, at any time.
Each Ultra HD display is individually calibrated by ChromaTune and is Technicolor Color Certified during production to realise natural colour expression with an accurate colour gamut to ensure true to life imagery. In addition users can manage individual colour space control of wide-gamut displays and apply to a variety of software applications depending on their use by preinstalled ChromaTune for Toshiba software. As a result, everything displayed on screen is reproduced according to the original intent and there are no mismatches when viewing photos or other imagery.
This premium combination of display features also enhances the Satellite P50t’s entertainment capability with users being able to benefit from the 10-point intuitive touchscreen providing a natural way to navigate Windows 8.1 and other touch centric applications. The addition of an anti-fingerprint coating prevents any unwanted marks on the screen while the edge to edge flush screen makes for a frameless touch experience. Touch sensitivity is also increased for better responsiveness.
The Toshiba Satellite P50t’s Intel 4th generation Core Quad-Core i7 processor takes on even the most demanding tasks with ease – even when multiple applications are running at the same time. Ideal for creating and viewing large media files, the P50t’s power is complimented by AMD Radeon R9 M265X enthusiast graphics, and 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM delivering a smooth and seamless editing and gaming experience. Together these components ensure premium performance supporting individual productivity and entertainment in turn. Additionally, the P50t’s generous storage configuration means users benefit from an HDD of up to 1 TB – ideal for those with larger libraries of music and media files.
For truly immersive portable media, both models also have harman/kardon speakers built-in, ensuring outstanding music, film and online audio playback. DTS Sound has also been incorporated, complementing the quality of the speakers, and augmenting the laptop’s multimedia capability. The Sleep-and-Music function allows users to listen to their favourite tunes via the in-built speakers, even when their laptop is hibernating.
In a premium, all-round PC, the small details count. A Blu-ray BD-RE (XL) drive is available, and users can enjoy their favourite content to its full capability on their big screen TV thanks to Ultra HD and 3D support on the HDMI output . In addition, content can be easily shared with other devices without the need for wires thanks to the inclusion of Intel Wireless Display, while four super-fast USB 3.0 ports allow for the quick transfer of files.
With aluminium clamshell casing and chrome accents, the Satellite P50t’s chassis is as striking as its on-screen visuals; its chic design making the series ideal for urban trend-setters. From the frameless, LED-backlit keyboard to the large clickpad, the P50t is stylishly defined, each feature adding to the usability of what is a powerful yet portable device.
