Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P50T-B-10K
Source: PC Advisor
The dazzling 4K display of the P50T-B-10K is genuinely in a class of its own, and will certainly appeal to professional photographers and video-editors. It may look good value when compared to rivals such as Apple's MacBook Pro with Retina Display but its poor battery life means that it will rarely leave the office, while professional users will likely be frustrated by Windows programs that don't work correctly with the 3840 x 2160 resolution display.

Featuring a gorgeous 4K display, Toshiba prioritises image quality over battery life. The image quality provided by the 4K display is outstanding and it's complemented by the strong all-round performance and a competitive price. Weight and battery life are weaknesses but they can be overlooked.

The Toshiba Satellite P50t is positioned primarily at the early adopter, or those of you who need a portable machine with which to work on 4K video files. It’s a solid computer that offers good quickness and plenty of built-in features, and its screen is definitely splendid. The only problems are the reflections that come off the screen, which can make for an annoying viewing experience, and the poor battery life, which can limit the unit’s mobility.

We like the idea of a workstation laptop with a high-resolution screen: more pixels means more desktop real estate, which means more windows and applications open at the same time, and the ability to work with images and videos in finer detail. Toshiba’s panel has the highest resolution we’ve seen on a laptop of this size, and it’s got exceptional accuracy, contrast, brightness and black point figures that sneak ahead of the Dell as its also-excellent screen. But it also suffers from the same scaling issues as every other high-resolution Windows notebook. Some applications are blurry or pixelated, others can’t be seen without squinting, and it makes for an irritating experience. Until third-parties fix these issues, we’d still prefer to work on a 1080p panel.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM).
