Although 4k resolution TVs ( UHD ) have not yet been adopted in the wild, Toshiba rushes to launch Japan’s first laptop with such a panel. We don’t expect to see the Dynabook T954 model anytime soon in other international markets . It is well known that the Japanese market is a test market for many manufacturers. Toshiba went for a 3840×2160 pixels resolution using an 15.6 ” IGZO panel . If we take under consideration that Lenovo has provided a 3200×1800 pixels resolution on a 13.3 ” panel, pixel density does not seem so great.
The netbook will be powered by an Intel Core i7 -4700 HQ, a high-performance model and will have a dedicated AMD Radeon R9 M265X video card enclosure . With 8 GB RAM and 1TB HDD hybrid storage, the Toshiba Dynabook T954 will be a very attractive laptop .Windows 8.1 Operating system is running and the ultra HD resolution panel is touch sensitive.
Not to be cheeky, , but I do not believe that this resolution brings any benefit to the end user. As we discussed in the case of Yoga 2 Pro sold by Lenovo , it is almost useless for an operating system which can’t scale all the graphics from inside one application .
The picture will be clearer and more details will be available , but right now the user will not be able to work at native resolution and increasing Desktop text is not an option because its not recognized by all applications. For those interested , Toshiba Dynabook T954 will cost about $ 3,500 in Japan.
