Toshiba launches range of Windows-10 ready laptops

Company goes in hard for Cortana integration across 12 new models

Toshiba has revealed a suite of new Windows 10-ready laptops, ranging from high-performance machines through to cloud-focused Chromebook challengers.

While the devices will ship with Windows 8.1, they will be released roughly four weeks before Windows 10 and be ready to upgrade as soon as the new operating system is released, according to the company.

This does not just mean the internal hardware will be able to run the new OS, but there are also new features on the outside of all the new models. Toshiba was particularly keen to highlight the new Cortana button, which effectively replaces the F1 button (for many years the default 'help' button).

The most high-end of the 2015 laptops are the three new P-Series models, which are aimed at "multimedia enthusiasts".

All three have a 15.6in display, with the P50t-C and P50-C are both available with touch-screen capabilities. The P50t-C also offers Ultra HD 4K resolution.

Inside, the P50t-C and P50-C both come with up to 5th generation Intel Core i7 processors and an Nvidia GeForce GT950M GPU, while the third model in the range, the P50D-C has a 6th generation AMD A10-8700P accelerated processor and AMD A10-8700 APU Radeon R6 GPU.

All three models offer a combination of up to 256GB SSD with up to 2TB HDD, or a 1TB solid state hybrid drive, and up to 16GB memory.

The company also revealed a new Radius 15 convertible with 360-degree hinge, which should put Windows 10's Continuum feature through its paces.

The device also has dual microphones, which, Toshiba said, would allow users to get the best from Cortana thanks to better voice capture.

Also launched were the budget C40-C laptop, a cloud-focused device that Toshiba said is particularly suited for children and students, three L-series laptops, which offer similar specs to the P-series but with a maximum of HD or Full HD displays, and the mid-range C70-C and C70-D-C.
