Toshiba Intros 4K Laptop, New Back-to-School Line
Toshiba will release multiple permutations in June of an entirely new Satellite line of clamshell-style laptops – as well introducing the industry’s first consumer-oriented 4K laptop computer.
The Satellite P55t 4K laptop boasts an aluminum chassis and 3890-by-2160 native resolution, said Carrie Cowan, product manager for Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, who unveiled it along with the other series being marketed under the Satellite umbrella.
The P55t carries an MSRP of $1,499 and is aimed at the prosumer market segment, which includes photo enthusiasts and video editors. It will be sold through Toshiba Direct and through “specific dealers who can reach that type of buyer,” she said. The model is certified by Technicolor, and is loaded with an application called ChromeTune that allows the user modify any images’ color settings from the Technicolor default setting. It is fully featured and includes a Blu-ray optical drive, USB and HDMI ports.
