New Toshiba Satellite with 4K Ultra HD display starts at $1,499

The Toshiba Satellite P55t with 4K Ultra HD display.

Toshiba’s new Satellite P55t, available April 22, comes with a super-high resolution 4K Ultra HD display. With 4K technology, display resolution is multiplied by four for much finer and smoother video images.

The laptop, with prices starting at $1,499, is a great choice for creative professionals who not only want to view, but create, content in 4K Ultra HD. Its modern and sleek design features edge-to-edge LCD glass, frameless LED-backlit keyboard and brushed aluminum finish. It will be available April 22 direct from Toshiba.

The P55t’s impressive 15.6-inch display has four times as many pixels as a full HD screen at a “whopping native 3,840-by-2,160 screen resolution with 282 PPI (pixels per inch),” writes Brandon LeBlanc on the Windows Experience Blog.

It also has IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology for wide viewing angles, making it ideal for photographers, cinematographers and graphic designers.

The P55t comes with a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, and 1TB of storage – roomy for storing lots of HD content.
