Lately we have been seeing an increase in the number of 4K monitors hitting the market, including ones recently unveiled by Dell. Content for these screens has been a bit slower to appear, though Netflix has recently pushed the trailer for the upcoming House of Cards season out in Ultra HD quality.

Today, Toshiba became the first to unveil the new technology in laptops, showing off a pair of new notebooks at CES 2014 in Las Vegas.

The Tecra W50 is a 15-inch model with integrated NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics, a fourth generation Intel Core processor, and a 3840 x 2160 282 PPI display. The Satellite P50t is a touchscreen model featuring the same specs as the W50. Both devices will ship with Windows 8.1. No other specs have been reported as of this writing, but we’ll update this when more information is known.

Few other details are known so far, including price and availability date for either device. It’s safe to assume they aren’t geared towards the budget-minded, so start saving up your money now if you have your heart set on one of these notebooks.
