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.

A design masterpiece made from aluminium
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.

Highly talented entertainers
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.

Satellite P850 features glasses-free 3D technology(*1)
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.

Sweeping surround sound with rich bass and clear treble
