If you keep yourself updated to the news in the tech industry and you are a tech passionate yourself, surely you were clapping at some point last week when you first heard that the world will have a Toshiba new coming Satellite P55T Laptop with 4K display and some other goodies in the same package. The good news is that the freshest challenger in the laptop market was announced to become available on April 22, so all you video fans out there, all you photographers and multi – media editors, open up your pockets, as the Satellite P55t does not only cost $1,500 (with about $500 cheaper than the MacBook Pro), but it will hook you for good with its impressive features.
Before you jump to buying it, let us make a short review of the facts: 4K displays are not the newest upgrade, so to speak, that laptop manufacturers boasted with recently. More than that, since CES 2014, the world expected Lenovo to come up with a crystal clear 4K display laptop, but Toshiba sped ahead and let the world know it will debut the Satellite P55t, a device said to have the means and the opportunity to strongly challenge the MacBook Air. As a reminder, besides the amazing display we will talk about immediately, the Toshiba new coming Satellite P55t laptop also boasts with its Intel Core i7 CPU and discrete Nvidia graphics, 1TB hard drive (although nobody said anything about a potential SSD option upgrade), up to 16GB RAM and a lot of other specs that trump a lot of existing laptops.
But of course, the main feature and the main pride of this new laptop is the display: a 15.6-inch clamshell which features a 3,840×2,160 native resolution, making this machine one interesting choice for those who just need a 4k resolution display, certified by non other than Technicolor.
But do you indeed need a 4 k resolution for a 15.6-inch screen? Last week, Ian Paul from PC World was asking himself the same question:
4K may be a great idea for cinematic screens at the movie theater, and I can even get behind 4K on some of the larger televisions. But shoving more pixels into a small display that is already densely packed at 1080p? Color me skeptical.
People may be skeptical about this, but, just as other reviewers and experts mentioned,
This premium Satellite is designed for photographers and video editors looking for a mobile platform with a crystal-clear screen. The display uses IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) technology, which allows for clearer and brighter images.
In other words, depending on what your personal line of business is, the Toshiba new coming Satellite P55t laptop may be the best thing you ever put your hands on, or just another crystal clear laptop on the market. But let’s pay attention to the future news and see how the new Satellite is going to impact the public.
