Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite P50t-BST2N01

80% Toshiba Satellite P50T-BST2N01

The Toshiba Satellite P50T-BST2N01 is a great system, with generally strong performance and a slick design, not to mention a jaw-dropping display that blows past every competitor on the market, but the short battery life puts a serious damper on our enthusiasm. The 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro remains our Editors' Choice for high-end desktop-replacement laptops, largely due to its superb battery life and superior performance, but even the MacBook's Retina Display can't offer true 4K images. That makes the Toshiba Satellite P50T-BST2N01 the system to get if you need 4K UHD and nothing less.

Otherwise, it's hard to complain much about the Satellite P50T-BST2N01. As we said, we wish there was more 4K content to enjoy on the system—Netflix is streaming a show or two in 4K for lucky users whose ISPs pump out 25Mbps, but that's like a drop of water to a thirsty crowd. As much as we dislike drooling and mumbling, "It's amazing; you just have to see it" in reviews, that's what we find ourselves mumbling.

80% Toshiba adds a gorgeous 4K screen to the Satellite P50t laptop
Source: CNet English
Even without the first-on-the-market 4K display, the Satellite P50t is a very nice premium 15-inch laptop, with a big touchpad, large hard drive, and decent AMD graphics. Would I pay $1,599 for that? Probably not, but it's not completely out of the ballpark. Adding that amazing-looking 4K screen is a big extra and definitely makes this a conversation piece, while still being a useful all-around midsize laptop.

It's nice to see Toshiba breaking new ground in the laptop world again. As the first notebook with a 4K display, the $1,799 Satellite P50T delivers arresting detail along with vivid hues. Color temperature settings and the inclusion of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom will be a boon for creative professionals.

70% Toshiba Satellite P50t-BST2N01 review: The first laptop to boast a 4K display
Source: PC World English
The Toshiba Satellite P50t delivers the highest resolution of any laptop you can buy today. But you won’t want to play games at its native resolution, and there’s almost no entertainment content to watch on its beautiful screen. It’s an awesome tool for digital content creators, provided you can get by with its 15.6-inch panel. No one will want to use it with an external 4K display at a refresh rate of 30Hz. 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.

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). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

2.3 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
