Amidst screen resolution wars going on in smartphone world, Toshibas has added the hot and happening 4K display to its 15 inch Satellite P50t Laptop and introduced it in Indian market at 86,000 INR. The touch screen laptop does look gorgeous and brings 4K at a reasonable price, there are some catches.
The main problem is the lack of 4K content. 4K hasn’t caught up yet and its still hard to find 4K content to watch and if you are a professional photographer, you are most likely using Mac. The AMD GPU inside can’t play the current games at 4k either.
The Satellite P50 comes with fourth generation Core i7 processor backed by 16 GB RAM and 1 TB hard disk. Graphics are being handled by AMD R9 M265X GPU and all this hardware makes this a performance beast. The design is slim and simple with a large sized keyboard and also, shock protection.
