Toshiba Satellite P50T-BST2N01


Toshiba's Satellite P50T-BST2N01 desktop-replacement laptop impresses immediately, thanks to a 4K display with 3,840-by-2,160 resolution, but it's best suited to enthusiasts and professionals who simply must have Ultra HD.

Fantastic 4K Ultra HD display. Technicolor-certified color and calibration tools. Harman/Kardon speakers and DTS sound. Solid performance, thanks to an Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia graphics

Very short battery life. Ultra-high-resolution display causes some scaling issues

The latest spec race among laptop manufacturers is in display resolution, kicked off by Apple's Retina display and spurred along with HD+ and ever higher pixel density from PC manufacturers. Toshiba has claimed the lead, with the Satellite P50T-BST2N01...

Discrete graphics? Check. Accurate color? Check. 4K content? Someday.

4K display (resolution of 3840x2160 pixels) ; Technicolor Color Certification (for color accuracy) ; Mostly high-end specs

Very little 4K video content available ; HDMI output limited to 30Hz at 4K resolution ; No Blu-ray drive

This is one beautiful laptop, but with 4K content so hard to come by, you might be paying for more technology than you can actually use.

Toshiba Satellite P50T-BST2N01


Who needs Retina Display when you've got 4K? Looking to one-up the competition, Toshiba has outfitted the Satellite P50T-B laptop with a stunning 3840 x 2160 display, making this the first laptop with Ultra HD resolution. But the 15-inch, $1,799 system...

Toshiba Satellite P50T-BST2N01 Review and Ratings


A brilliant 4K (quad-1080p) Technicolor display will attract photo and video editors to Toshiba's surprisingly affordable laptop, but everyday users will find a few compromises.

Glorious 3,840x2,160 touch screen ; Comfortable backlit keyboard ; Four USB 3.0 ports

Poor battery life ; No SSD option available ; No Thunderbolt port ; Windows can't match OS X's scaling on super-high-res displays

Toshiba rates the P50T's battery life at three hours, and we saw 2 hours and 45 minutes in our strenuous video playback test. That's disappointing—more what we'd expect from a ponderous 17-inch gaming laptop than a 15-inch productivity machine, and...

Toshiba Satellite P50t-BST2N01: The first laptop to boast a 4K display


Toshiba's Satellite P50t boasts two important firsts: It's the first laptop to feature a 4K display, and it's the first to be Technicolor Color Certified. You likely have at least a passing familiarity with 4K video, but I would argue that the latter...

The day will come when 4K movies are as common as 1080p video is today. Until then, dropping $1800 for a Toshiba Satellite P50t buys bragging rights and a color-accurate display more than anything else.
