We saw a lot of 4K TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year; more than you could shake a stick at. But we also saw some 4K laptops, including one offering from Toshiba. Dubbed the Satellite P55t, Toshiba claimed the title of 'world's first Ultra HD 4K laptop' when it announced the notebook back in January. Unfortunately, the company wouldn't talk specs or release date beyond 'mid-2014.' We hadn't been expecting to see the P55t until May or June, but Toshiba today announced that the laptop is coming to the U.S. market this month.
The P55t packs a 15.6-inch Ultra HD display with a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution and a pixel density of 282 PPI. The laptop is powered by Intel's 4th gen quad-core Core i7 CPU coupled with AMD Radeon R9 M265X graphics with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM and 16 GB of DDR3L RAM. There's also 1 TB of HDD storage on board as well as a Blu-ray drive, HDMI out, USB 3.0 x 4, Harman Kardon stereo speakers, SD/SDHC slot, WiDi, WiFi, Bluetooth 4, and Windows 8.1. The laptop will also come with a full version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.
Pricing for this is $1,499, and it will be available at Toshiba.com/us next Tuesday, April 22.
