4K is one of the technologies that have taken the longest to actually reach the market. So these 4K laptops are quite welcome news.
There’s really not that much to say, obviously the screens are amazing. If you thought the retina screens on the macbooks were good, then these will blow your mind. They have full 4k resolution 3840 x 2160 as opossed to 2880×1800 retina resolution. Besides the ultra HD screens these laptops aren’t too shabby. The P55T has an i5 processor, a 1TB harddrive and 1792MB Intel HD graphics card. The Tecra W50 has an i7 and a 2GB NVIDIA Quadro K2100M.
