Toshiba dishes the spec on its Satellite P50t 4K laptop

Toshiba flaunted its Satellite P50t laptop at CES back at the start of the year, and now the company has revealed the juicy details of this machine's tech spec.

The headline for this model is, of course, that 4K display – it's a 15.6in touchscreen offering a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, which is going to make things super-sharp to say the least.

However, it will also make that huge amount of pixels super-difficult to drive, especially when it comes to the likes of gaming – which is why Toshiba is putting an Intel Core i7 processor on board, 16GB of RAM, and a 2GB AMD Radeon R9 M265 graphics solution.

Engadget also notes that it'll come loaded with Windows 8.1, 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, and a 1TB hard disk (with no SSD, favouring storage over speed in this aspect).

As you'd probably guessed, that's the premium model, and there will be other lesser spec machines down the line – namely the S50 and S70, which will drop the mega-resolution (and doubtless mega-expensive) 4K display for a plain old 1080p screen (or a lesser resolution still, depending on your requirements and budget).

The price is, of course, the potential thorny aspect of the P50, and Toshiba hasn't made any announcements on that front – neither is there a confirmed release date, though it should be out in Q2.

At the other end of the scale, Toshiba also unveiled its Chromebook at CES – and that model is now on sale for a wallet-friendly £250 (which is probably what the P50's screen will cost you).
