World’s First 4K Ultra HD Laptops Coming Mid-2014

Toshiba Satellite P50 / P55 - Soon with 4K Ultra HD Display

Starting mid-2014, Toshiba will begin offering 4K Ultra HD resolution on select laptop models, the Satellite P50 / P55 and Tecra W50 / W55 in particular.

Pixel count on these world’s first 15.6-inch 4K notebooks will be 3840 x 2160 pixels, which translates to industry leading pixel density of 282 pixels-per-inch (PPI). This should result in incredibly sharp picture. Currently the highest resolution and highest PPI laptop displays are on a Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus model and the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro with QHD+ 3200 x 1800 resolution on their 13.3″ 276 PPI screens. Also, the HP Envy TouchSmart 14 optionally has the same resolution and 275 PPI on its 14″ display.
