Stimulate your senses with the new Toshiba Satellite P50t laptop – featuring stunning displays, premium audio and powerful performance

London, UK, 19th March 2014 – Toshiba UK today announces the new Satellite P50t – ideal for visual creative professionals and multimedia enthusiasts, it offers outstanding levels of portable picture quality, delivering true-to-life image production alongside a premium mobile entertainment experience. With the option of a 3840 x 2160 4k screen, the P50t is Toshiba’s first laptop with an Ultra HD display. Alternatively, a Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen is available.

The Satellite P50t was built to take on the most intensive computing demands and turn heads at the same time. With a rare blend of power and beauty, the premium built P50t offers the perfect solution for strenuous multi-tasking, media creation and gaming.

Picture perfect, touch optimised
On the P50t’s 15.6” (39.6 cm) Ultra HD display, every detail is shown with crystal-clear definition and houses four times as many pixels as a Full HD screen featuring 282 PPI (pixels per inch) resulting in smoother imagery, and an astounding level of detail. The display allows for higher resolutions and wider viewing angles meaning photographers, graphic designers and entertainment enthusiasts can create, review and playback to an exceptional professional standard from anywhere, at any time.

Each Ultra HD display is individually calibrated by ChromaTuneTM and is Technicolor® Color Certified during production to realise natural colour expression with an accurate colour gamut to ensure true to life imagery. In addition users can manage individual colour space control of wide-gamut displays and apply to a variety of software applications depending on their use by preinstalled ChromaTuneTM for Toshiba software. As a result, everything displayed on screen is reproduced according to the original intent and there are no mismatches when viewing photos or other imagery.

This premium combination of display features also enhances the P50t’s entertainment capability with users being able to benefit from the 10-point intuitive touchscreen providing a natural way to navigate Windows 8.1 and other touch centric applications. The addition of an anti-fingerprint coating prevents any unwanted marks on the screen while the edge to edge flush screen makes for a frameless touch experience. Touch sensitivity is also increased for better responsiveness.

Pure performance
The Satellite P50t’s Intel® 4th generation Core Quad-Core™ i7 processor takes on even the most demanding tasks with ease – even when multiple applications are running at the same time. Ideal for creating and viewing large media files, the P50t’s power is complimented by AMD® Radeon™ R9 M265X enthusiast graphics, and 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM delivering a smooth and seamless editing and gaming experience. Together these components ensure premium performance supporting individual productivity and entertainment in turn. Additionally, the P50t’s generous storage configuration means users benefit from an HDD of up to 1TB – ideal for those with larger libraries of music and media files.

Maximising the entertainment experience
For truly immersive portable media, both models also have harman/kardon® speakers built-in, ensuring outstanding music, film and online audio playback. DTS SoundTM has also been incorporated, complementing the quality of the speakers, and augmenting the laptop’s multimedia capability. The Sleep-and-Music function allows users to listen to their favourite tunes via the in-built speakers, even when their laptop is hibernating.

In a premium, all-round PC, the small details count. A Blu-rayTM BD-RE (XL) drive is available, and users can enjoy their favourite content to its full capability on their big screen TV thanks to Ultra HD and 3D support on the HDMI® output . In addition, content can be easily shared with other devices without the need for wires thanks to the inclusion of Intel® Wireless Display, while four super-fast USB 3.0 ports allow for the quick transfer of files.

Stunning design
With aluminium clamshell casing and chrome accents, the Satellite P50t’s chassis is as striking as its on-screen visuals; its chic design making the series ideal for urban trend-setters. From the frameless, LED-backlit keyboard to the large clickpad, the P50t is stylishly defined, each feature adding to the usability of what is a powerful yet portable device.

John Lewis will be the launch partner for the Satellite P50t, which will be available during the second quarter of 2014.
