Toshiba introduces the Satellite

Toshiba Gulf FZE announces the launch of its new Satellite P850 in South Africa. The Satellite P850, a high-definition entertainment powerhouse offering the latest CPU and graphics processing, and a premium video and audio experience, is targeted at users looking for a laptop with superb power and graphics performance. The laptop makes using advanced high-definition multimedia applications or multitasking hassle free, and is able to simultaneously display 2D and 3D content.

“The Satellite P850 is a high-definition entertainment powerhouse that offers the latest CPU and graphics processing with a premium video and audio experience,” says Jorge da Silva, Head of Sales for South Africa. “If you’re looking for a laptop with superb power and graphics performance for advanced, high definition multimedia applications, the P850 is sure to impress.”

The new Satellite P850 is powered by Intel’s latest CPUs and NVIDIA’s latest generation graphics technology. Together the laptop delivers enough power to run the most demanding computing tasks including smooth multitasking and high-definition multimedia applications. The laptop comes with a large capacity HDD or an optional Hybrid HDD with solid state memory support to further improve its performance by providing faster response times and instant application loading.

The Satellite P850 with their slim, classic silhouettes is available with a choice of two textured aluminium casing designs – brushed aluminium with rounded edges or textured aluminium on both the cover and the bottom. The tactility of this high-quality material works in harmony with the visual appearance of the new models with their rounded edges.

The laptop is packed with a choice of HD entertainment features to provide a high-quality movie, music and gaming experience. The high-definition TruBrite displays playback movies, photos and games in brilliant colours and clarity. Toshiba’s Resolution+ ‘video up’ conversion technology breathes new life into users’ video libraries by up-converting standard-definition videos to near high-definition quality. This enables the Satellite P850 to add the third dimension to 2D videos in near real-time. The Satellite P850 is able to stream the 3D video data to a connected 3D-enabled TV via HDMI.

In addition, the Satellite P850 features a 39.6cm (15.6’’) widescreen Full-HD TruBrite 3D display supporting glasses-free 3D technology. The laptop delivers a true 3D viewing experience without the need to wear 3D glasses while watching 3D movies on Blu-ray or DVD discs, or while playing a 3D game. Its face-tracking technology allows users to move their head in front of the display without losing the 3D view. Thanks to the laptop’s ability to simultaneously display 2D and 3D content, users can watch a 3D movie and, in parallel, browse the web to see additional 2D content.

The harman/kardon stereo speakers – tuned with Slipstream technology – allows the bass to achieve high outputs with low distortions. Support of SRS Premium Sound 3D sound enhancement technology delivers a wider surround sound for music, movies and games.

The Satellite P850 features four USB 3.0 ports to transfer data at a rate that is ten times faster than with USB 2.0. It also features a Bluetooth 4.0 interface for low-energy and fast wireless data synchronisation over larger distances. Plus the laptop has Intel Wireless Display technology onboard. It allows the content of the laptop’s display to be wirelessly replicated on the large screen of a TV via a Wi-Fi adaptor, or via a projector on the presentation screen.

The Satellite P850 is available from June at a recommended retail price starting from R15 999 (incl VAT).
