The Toshiba Satellite brand has lost some of its flame over the past years, but it has evolved towards the convertible segment now. There’s a new model in town, one called Toshiba Satellite Radius 11, that has just reached the FCC. This product is a portable notebook with a screen that flips back 360 degrees.
The Radius 11 was in fact unveiled at IFA 2014 last month and was promised to debut in the UK priced at $530. It’s expected in the US this month or the next, with a yet unmentioned price. The convertible laptop has passed through the FCC and it features a 1366 x 768 pixel display, 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB HDD. The “brain” is an Intel Celeron or Pentium processor and this model also brings HDMI output, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth.
The system weighs around 2.9 pounds, so it’s kind of heavy for a tablet, but also light for a notebook. The design may seem familiar, because the Satellite Radius borrowed the whole hinge thing (probably) from the Lenovo Yoga series. Of course, many other companies, such as HP, ASUS, Dell or Panasonic did lately.
