Today's press release says that the Toshiba Satellite P55t notebook (previously known as the P50t) will have a 15.6 inch Ultra HD TruBrite display that supports 282 PPI. Toshiba adds:

Each Ultra HD display is individually calibrated by Chroma Tune and is Technicolor Certified during production to realize natural color expression with an accurate color gamut to ensure true-to-life imagery. As a result, everything displayed on screen is reproduced according to the original intent and there are no mismatches when viewing photos or other imagery.

Inside the 4.8 pound Windows 8.1 notebook, Toshiba has put in a Intel fourth generation Core i7 processor, an AMD Radeon R9 M265X GPU with 2GB of video memory, and support for up to 16GB of RAM. There's also a 1TB hard drive 4 USB 3.0 ports and a built in Blu-Ray disc player.
