Summary: Pixel machine. Outsider - trailblazer? While the competition is equipping their high-definition luxury-range with Nvidia GPUs, the Japanese manufacturer relies on AMD's Radeon R9. Will the combination of a 4K screen, fast computing cores, build, and ergonomics result in a round bundle that deserves...
Pros: High-color 4K screen, High-quality chassis, High-feedback keyboard, Good touchpad, Low noise during normal use, Feasible sound, High computing power, Relatively swift SSHD, Toshiba can justly take pride on screen competence here. The awesome resolution is one thing, but the colors could not be mo...
Cons: Not gaming suitable in FHD / 4K, Short battery life, Complicated maintenance / upgrade, No SSD, Throttled brightness in battery mode, Runtimes like we know from other high-performance machines. Toshiba should have combined an mSATA or M.2 SSD with an HDD for this price.
Excerpt: It may not be the sexiest laptop around, but if you want to carry around the sharpest screen, then Toshiba’s latest Satellite P50t is one machine worth checking out for its attractive 4K display.
Summary: Toshiba Satellite P50t-B-10T Notebook is a high quality 15-inch laptop that is all-rounder in functionality, performance, and display with the only drawback experienced during the maintenance practice.
Conclusion: That said, as long as the content drought continues, it's hard to write off the MacBook Pro With Retina Display in favor of the Satellite: The Apple gives you a Thunderbolt port, better scaling of on-screen elements, and triple the battery life.
Pros: Glorious 3,840x2,160 touch screen, Comfortable backlit keyboard, Four USB 3.0 ports
Cons: Poor battery life, No SSD option available, No Thunderbolt port, Windows can't match OS X's scaling on super-high-res displays
Excerpt: Laptops these days tend to be built to fit into a certain category. Most of which are judged based on the performance. The Toshiba Satellite P50T is one laptop that can quite possibly fit into two.
Pros: Great design; impressive hardware; touchscreen; keyboard
Summary: Toshiba isn’t usually associated with making high performance gaming notebooks. They don’t make bad notebooks, it might just be that none of them are particularly shiny. Maybe the Satellite P50t can change that. It’s definitely shiny, with all that aluminium. Taking pictures wasn’t easy either.
Pros: Fantastic screen quality, Reliable build, Blu-ray drive, That display is the heart of the P50t, and it certainly does the job. You can't tell the pixels apart, despite the larger screen and, on mains power, it's colourful and responsive. Indeed, it might be one of the most colourful screens we've...
Cons: Noisy, Poor battery life, Average graphics performance, This laptop doesn't like running on battery power - it doesn't last long and it has a very dim screen whilst it's doing it. Compared to the MacBook Pro's eight hour battery life, 2 hours 23 minutes is extremely poor. And the screen is too gl...
Toshiba Satellite P50t-BST2N01: The first laptop to boast a 4K display
22 May 2014
Excerpt: Toshiba's Satellite P50t boasts two important firsts: It's the first laptop to feature a 4K display, and it's the first to be Technicolor Color Certified. You likely have at least a passing familiarity with 4K video, but I would argue that the latter claim to fame--which you might never have heard...
