Toshiba P50t

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - CONTENTS - By Nidhi Sin­gal

Ul­tra HD, also known as 4k, is the new buzz­word in the tech­nol­ogy space. This tech­nol­ogy is cur­rently very elu­sive ow­ing to the high price that the prod­ucts com­mand. And it isn’t go­ing to be the main­stream tech­nol­ogy any­time soon. While the 4k TVs con­tinue to be priced ex­or­bi­tantly, Toshiba’s Satel­lite P50t is the world’s first Ul­tra HD lap­top, priced at ` 86,000.

This lap­top packs in a 15.6-inch IPS dis­play, which of­fers great colours, crisp text and wide view­ing an­gles. The 4k res­o­lu­tion makes it look good even fur­ther. Be it HD or 4k con­tent, the video play­back qual­ity is su­perb. But its real ap­pli­ca­tion lies when you are edit­ing mul­ti­ple videos or pho­to­graphs. You do not have to browse these videos or pho­to­graphs and you have more space to view them on in a very high res­o­lu­tion. The only lim­i­ta­tion at the mo­ment is the lack of 4k con­tent. But the Satel­lite P50t suc­cess­fully man­ages to make full HD con­tent look good and bet­ter than the other lap­tops. For gamers, the lap­top is ahead of its times as very limited, new games look good on this dis­play. The older ti­tles don’t. Lastly, the HDMI port is 4k ready, which goes well with a 4k TV at home.

Look­ing very sim­i­lar to the Satel­lite P50 launched last year, this new 4k lap­top has a brushed metal­lic fin­ish which is prone to scratches. The Toshiba logo is placed on the cor­ner, gelling with the de­sign. The key­board is very smooth to type. How­ever, it weights 2.35 kg, which makes it a bit too heavy. Other than the 4k dis­play, the lap­top packs in an i7 pro­ces­sor, Har­mon Kar­don speak­ers, 1TB HDD and 16GB RAM. All in all, the P50t brings in a lot many fea­tures at this price.
