Toshiba Has Another Crack At Trying To Get Notebook Traction
But two-in-ones may be old hat. Tosh calls its new Satellite Radius 12 notebook, which sports a 12.5-inch screen, a “5-in-1” model. The company doesn’t explain what that means, but rival Acer also has a “five-in-one” and says it can indeed be used in five modes: a notebook, a desktop, and in pad, display and tent modes, the latter three all without the keyboard..
Tosh’s Satellite Radius 12 five-in-one has a detachable 4K Ultra HD touchscreen display; built-in Harman Kardon speakers; a 512GB solid-state drive; and an Intel dual-core processor. Australian pricing starts at $2399.
The company’s other new model, the Satellite Click 10, pictured, is a detachable 2-in-1 notebook that transforms from a laptop with a full-sized keyboard, to a tablet.
Described as a “school BYOD-friendly” device, it has a 10.1-inch touchscreen, a claimed 15-hour battery life; and weight of just 1.1kg, when used as a notebook; 553g in tablet mode. Available now from “selected retailers”, it goes for a recommended $699
