Toshiba debuts new Satellite Radius convertible PCs
The launch of Toshiba’s new Satellite S line of notebooks has been followed by more launches one of which is dedicated to the Satellite Radius line of 2-in-1 convertible PCs. Toshiba has unveiled three new models – the 14-inch Satellite Radius 14, the 15.6-inch Satellite Radius 15 and the 15.6-inch Satellite Radius 4K Ultra HD Edition. All these computers fully support Windows 10 and feature a precision 2-axis hinge, allowing the screen to rotate full 360 degrees, which converts the devices from laptop to tablet and everything in between.
“A tremendous amount of R&D has gone into convertible PC design over Toshiba’s 30-year history as a laptop leader,” said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “Today, convertibility is all about convenience – consumers can ditch multiple devices and get it all done with one. We believe that by offering new thin and light designs, screen options in resolutions from HD to 4K and a range of new, affordable price points, we’re playing our part in further fueling the growth potential of this category.”
The new Satellite Radius line features 5th generation Intel Broadwell processors or AMD APUs as well as other hardware goodies including illuminated keyboards, HD web cameras, TruTalk dual-array microphones for voice apps such as Cortana and Skype, metallic chassis, the fastest 802.11ac Wi-Fi and various ports including Super Speed USB 3.0 ports that allow ultra fast data transfer rates from external hard drives.
The new Toshiba Satellite Radius convertible PCs will be on the market on June 21, 2015 at various retailers in the USA. The 14-inch model starts at USD 584.99, while the 15.6-inch models start at USD 842.99. All new Satellite Radius PCs come with Windows 8.1 pre-installed but are eligible for a free Windows 10 upgrade when the new Windows version becomes available.
