Toshiba laptop with 4K display Satellite P55t announced

It seems like Toshiba is coming back in action with some hot stuff for higher quality displays. The growing demand for high-resolution displays was kickstarted by Apple which initiated this new desire to have better and better quality displays but it was quite inevitable that other players in the market would soon follow suit. Though it was Apply that initially introduced the high resolution displays onto the tablets and smartphones but other competitors grabbed the idea and played around with it as much as they could. And this new level was taken to laptops where everything from Samsung's Ativ Books to Asus' Zenbooks have received super high-res displays that in many cases outclass even Apple's Retina Macbook Pros when it comes to pixels.

Now Toshiba, taking things a notch further, is announcing a laptop with a 15.6-inch 4K and it will be available in the US for $1,499.99 beginning next week. The trend of having laptops go beyond displays of 1080p has been a new one but surprisingly a handful of manufacturers have been introducing them lately into the market. Some of these laptops are offering resolutions of 2560 by 1440 pixels (which is known as WQHD) while manufacturers like Samsung and Lenovo have opted to go even higher, jumping up to 3200 by 1800 pixels. Considering all this, Toshiba's new 4K resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels seem to be quite impressive which has been topped up on the new Satellite P55t.

Toshiba has packed in all the impressive specs and this entire package makes the deal fairly compelling and too good to be true. It features an i7 Haswell processor and has a 1TB hard drive and a whopping RAM of 16 GB. It features the much wanted Blu-ray drive and is run on AMD's new Radeon R9 series laptop graphics units with 2GB of memory. Toshiba has yet to make clear whether this GPU is coming along with the same base price of the laptop or not and it seems unlikely that a 16 GB RAM woulc come along with the base price.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
