Summary: Before I start though, kudos to the Eluktronics for amazing customer service. I ordered the laptop a week before it came out and chose to pay (a lot) extra for one day shipping to be sure I got it before leaving on a business trip. To my surprise it showed up a day after my order.
Summary: Toshiba seems to have shocked the laptop market again. With the title of the first laptop equipped with 4K screen, Satellite P50T displays crisp images and vivid colors. The Core i7 and R9 M265X will be very helpful to creative professionals. However, poor battery life is a huge drawback.
Summary: PROS: Fast computer. Love that! Many software companies offer apps instead of software such as Adobe. It's nice to use their apps because they are downloaded on Adobe's or whoever's app you're using's server instead of directly on your computer. While apps are nice, I don't always enjoy using them.
Summary: I love this this laptop. It has everything I was looking for. Touchscreen, high powered, large HDD, great design, adequate ports and more. My first laptop 7 years ago was a Toshiba and its still working so I have faith in this brand.
Excerpt: Very good performance, but it is slightly heavier than Lenovo Y50, and batter life is very poor. Also, perhaps due to its touch screen feature, the screen has very strong glare, which hurts my eyes quite a lot. This may potentially be alleviated by buying a separate film, I think.
Summary: Not so keen on Windows 8 (now 8.1) and the touchpad can be a bit of a pain sometimes, having an area in the top left to switch off the TouchPad that works like a double tap button which I'm slowly getting better at avoiding. Couldn't work out what was going wrong with it in the early days.
Summary: I mistakenly thought that by spending a £1000 on a high spec modern laptop that I would be buying something special. Instead it is slow, awkward to use and is constantly trying to enlist you in subscription services. Windows 8 is a pain in the chuff.Not as usable as my 5 year old Sony Vaio.
