Toshiba is on a roll this quarter as the manufacturer continues to update its expansive Satellite series of notebooks. The latest model to get the refresh treatment is the 17.3-inch P70B, which now ships with 64-bit Windows 10 and will start for around 1100 Euros.
The four new SKUs will feature 1 TB SSHDs with 8 GB SSD cache, optical drives, and FHD (1920 x 1080) resolution displays. The new Radeon R9 M365X with 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM and Enduro will be standard, too.
Differences between the new SKUs include CPU and RAM options. The less expensive P70-B-11V and P70-B-11W will have 12 and 8 GB RAM, respectively, with a slower Core i5-4200H CPU introduced in late 2013. The more expensive P70-B-11R and P70-B-11U will have 12 and 16 GB RAM, respectively, with Core i7-4720HQ processors commonly found on many high-end gaming notebooks as of 2015.

When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
