Toshiba announced plans to release two premium 15.6-inch laptops featuring 4K Ultra HD displays (3840×2160 resolution at 282 PPI) in mid-2014. The notebooks include the Tecra W50 mobile workstation, ideal for engineers and 3D designers and the Satellite P50t for professional photographers, graphic designers and 4K movie enthusiasts. To further enhance the viewing experience, the displays are also color calibrated with accurate color gamut and feature wide viewing angles.
In comparison, Toshiba’s 4K laptop displays will provide even more resolution than Apple’s current 15.4-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, which tops out at 2880×1800 pixels (220 PPI) of resolution.

Packed with premium features and sophisticated styling, the Satellite P50t is designed to kick mobile entertainment into high gear with a responsive touchscreen display and a powerful 4th generation Intel Core processor. Available with a 15.6-inch diagonal Ultra HD 4K display with edge-to-edge glass that provides unprecedented color, clarity and contrast.
A portable powerhouse built for the most intensive visual and engineering tasks, the Tecra W50 mobile workstation features a 15.6-inch diagonal Ultra HD 4K display, plus unsurpassed durability and one of the thinnest, lightest designs in its class at less than six pounds. The Tecra W50 features high-precision performance for today’s most demanding tasks — including SolidWorks and AutoCAD — with a full-voltage 4th generation Intel Core processing technology.
“The Toshiba Tecra W50 mobile workstation, with the Kepler-based NVIDIA Quadro K2100M GPU and 2GB of dedicated video memory, delivers uncompromised performance and rich visual experiences for graphics-heavy applications that creative professionals demand,” said Shawn Worsell, product line manager for the Quadro Professional Solutions Business at NVIDIA. “With the addition of an integrated 4K display, this is an ideal machine for designers, engineers and digital content professionals looking to be productive, and stylish, anywhere.”
The Toshiba Tecra W50 and Satellite P50t with 4K displays will be available in mid-2014. Pricing not yet announced.
