The new Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is a stunning hybrid that promises superb mobility and awesome user experience. The lightweight convertible laptop parades a premium design and a stunning 4K display while latest Intel Core i series processor powers away under the hood.
Design and Display
You can easily notice the premium status of Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 from its first-class aluminium chassis with satin gold finish. It is highly portable at a thickness of just 15.4 millimetres and a weight of 2.8 pounds (1.32 kg).
The convertible laptop features a first-grade hinge that lets you fold it back a full 360 degrees to use in tablet mode as well as in other modes in-between, including tent and stand.
Perhaps, the most interesting thing about the Satellite Radius 12 is its 12.5-inch display with a jaw-dropping 4K resolution which gives you a pixel density of 352 – way more than obtainable on a Retina MacBook. If you think an Ultra HD 4K display is excessive, however, it may please you to learn Full HD (1080p) is the standard option.
Power and Performance
Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is designed to deliver solid performance – just what you would expect of a laptop this expensive. It is powered by a sixth-generation Intel Core i series processor from the Skylake family.
The convertible laptop comes with up to Core i7 processor, paired with up to 8 GB of RAM. It runs on the latest Windows 10 operating system offering you the best of features on the platform. Toshiba says buyers should expect up to eight hours of battery life, which is decent for a machine packing latest Core i processor.
Zippy solid-state drive of up to 512GB capacity is provided for storage on Toshiba Satellite Radius 12. Harman Kardon speakers, which are supported by DTS Sound technology, supply users with rich sound – you can even play songs from your compatible phone or tablet through the speakers using the Bluetooth Link feature.
