Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 is here, bring with it the convertible form factor at a remarkably affordable price. The company has really jumped on the budget bandwagon for Windows 8.1.
Several Toshiba devices have launched this year, with a few more in the pipeline for the holiday season.
But this one takes the cake, in that the device looks very much similar to the Lenovo Yoga range, allowing for a traditional notebook form factor with a 360 degree hinge. It allows the display to fold over full circle, opening up the possibilities for a variety of configurations.
You can covert it into tablet mode, for instance, with ease.
The only downside is the weight of the device — at nearly three pounds, the Satellite Radius 11 is not exactly a mobile solution when used in the tablet mode. At least for one handed use.
Here are some of the key hardware specifications:
As the name suggests, you get an 11.6-inch HD TruBrite touchscreen display, powered by either the Intel Pentium or Celeron processors in a fanless design. 4GB of memory come standard with a 32GB SSD, though an option for a 500 GB standard hard drive is also available.
Ports and connectivity options include one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, an HDMI and a microSD card slot.
