Toshiba teased its first 4K laptop back at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, this January and now it’s time for the tech giant to announce its US availability.
The notebook arrives in the States as the Toshiba Satellite P55T, equipped with a 15.6-inch laptop with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution and an amazing 282 ppi.
Under the hood lies a powerful 4th-gen Intel quad-core i7 CPU combined with 16GB of RAM fitted with AMD’s 2GB DDR5 Radeon R9 M265X discrete graphics.
Furthermore, the Toshiba lappy has Tehnicolor certification, which means users will enjoy the highest levels of color calibration on the laptop’s display.
Toshiba has also slipped in a copy of Adobe’s Lightloom 5 in order to woo in photographer and designer professionals. In terms of internal storage, we have a 1TB, 5400 RPM mechanical hard drive.
The laptop arrives towards the end of the month, on April 22 to be more precise and will retail for $1,500 / €1,087.
Apart from launching the 4K laptop, Toshiba has also taken the opportunity to launch three consumer-orientated notebooks, including the 15.6-inch Satellite S55, 17.3-inch Satellite S75 and 14-inch Satellite E45.
All three models can be fitted with up to 1080p resolution and users get to choose what goes under the hood, in the form of either Core i5 or i7 dual-core CPUs. If we’re talking about the so-called “desktop replacement,” the S75, then there’s an AMD A10 APU option available too.
The laptops can be fitted with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. If you need a touchscreen to get though the day, Toshiba throws that in too, but only with the S55t and E45t models. Prices start at $640 / €464 for the 14-inch E45.
Last but not least, here come the “every day stuff” notebooks as Toshiba calls them. These models include the C55/C75 and L55/L75. The line-up includes models with screen sizes ranging from 15.6-inch to 17.3-inch.
The offer isn't so varied here, as only the L55 comes with a touchscreen and screens won’t offer the more advanced options. Toshiba is pretty foggy about the actual specifications, but we’re probably going to see the laptops arrive with AMD/Intel CPUs, max of 12GB of RAM and 1TB hard drive.
The two series are pretty affordable and targeting the budget conscious consumers so the C series starts at $400 / €290, while the L model climbs up from $330 / €239. Expect these models to arrive starting June 22.
