“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.”
Get It All Done With One™
Satellite Radius devices deliver the best of both worlds – the full performance of a laptop plus the convenience of a tablet. A two-axis flip-and-fold hinge enables a smooth transition into five different viewing modes – Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. Get work done on a slim, high-performance laptop then flip the screen to conduct presentations, be entertained or browse comfortably in tablet mode.
Brilliant 4K Display, Brilliant Audio
Toshiba was the first manufacturer to offer a consumer laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display, and now is the first to deliver that brilliance in a convertible laptop with the Satellite Radius 15 4K Ultra HD Edition. With a stunning 3840 x 2160 resolution with 282 PPI (pixels per inch), customers can enjoy movies, TV and photos in crystal-clear definition. Built-in Harman Kardon® stereo speakers and DTS Sound™ plus exclusive Slipstream™ port technology in the speakers that reduces distortion, creates a more precise, rich sound at max volume for listening to your favorite music or watching video while at work or home or on the go.
Built With Windows 10 in Mind
Designed to take advantage of the new experiences enabled by Windows 10 with smart performance and customized features built around the way you work and play, these devices are also equipped with HD webcams and TruTalk™ dual-array microphones to enable voice apps like Cortana and Skype, plus a dedicated Cortana key for easy access to Microsoft’s personal digital assistant.
These new 2-in-1 convertible PCs are thin and lightweight, featuring sculpted lines and illuminated keyboards. The Satellite Radius 15 features a brushed-metal enclosure, while the Satellite Radius 14 features an all-new brushed resin black matte cover and a brushed-metal palm rest.
