Toshiba P55t 4K Ultra HD ultrabook launches April 22nd for $1500

One of the first laptops to feature a 3840 x 2160 pixel display is about to hit the streets. The Toshiba Satellite P55t features a 15.6 inch, 4K Ultra HD display and a starting price of $1500.

It’ll be available in the United States starting April 22nd, 2014.

The laptop has a 1TB hard drive, supports up to 16GB of RAM, Harman Kardon stereo speakers, an Intel Core i7 Haswell processor, and AMD Radeon R9 M265X graphics with 2GB of dedicated video memory.

It supports 802.11ac WiFi, has 4 USB 3.0 ports, and features a UHS-II SD card slot.

But it’s really the 4K dislay and support for 4K video output that help set this laptop apart. The touchscreen display has 282 pixels per inch and edge-to-edge glass. And while the $1500 starting price is a bit high for a Windows laptop, the notebook is actually much cheaper than an entry-level 15 inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, even though Apple’s laptop has a lower resolution, 2880 x 1800 pixel screen.

    I gotta have either a trackpoint or touchscreen… touchpad is not my style. I don’t wanna lug a mouse around with me…well, maybe a micromouse. No Maxwell either?
