With Toshiba Satellite Radius 12, you probably have some of the excellent qualities you would expect from a real computer. This machine possesses a convertible twelve-inch screen, accompanied with a 4K touchscreen which is optional. It also comes with a sixth- generation processor, a RAM of 8GB, and a drive which is in the solid state, of 256GB. However, the only disappointment it has is the lower battery life compared to other brands out there.
Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 – Design and Beautiful Display:
The black metal- brush finish is nice enough to impress even those around you, while its comparatively tiny size enables it to fit in any bag, with ease. Its screen is a huge plus, as it can rotate three hundred and sixty degrees, allowing you to use it in stand, tablet and tent modes. The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 weighs about 2.95 pounds and measures 11.8 by 8.2 by 0.60- inch. It is therefore very easy to carry and suitable for those who are always on the move.
It is evident that Toshiba Satellite Radius 12, despite its relatively smaller size, the 4K screen at its disposal is highly rated. Compacted in (3840 by 2160) 4K, the screen makes everything clear and crisp. Other than the display, the panel of this computer can produce almost all of the Adobe RGB gamut color, which is far higher than any typical laptop its size. On top of that, it has close to three hundred and thirty-eight nits.
Audio, Webcam, and the Ports.
The speakers which are placed facing downwards produces good sound if not high. For sound improvements, you just have to flip it into a tablet, from a notebook mode.
On its left side, it has a complete HDMI port, a USB 3.1 port of type C, and a USB port of 3.0. Located on its right side is an additional USB 3.0 port, a slot for an SD card, button for power, a sound toggle, and another exciting addition is the Cortana button, which functions when using it in the Tablet mode.
Due to its smaller size, Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 has a keyboard that fits and maximizes the available space. It’s not a keyboard size of my preference, as its 1.35 travel is comparatively smaller than what I expected. Notably, one would also make more mistakes in typing as the keys are not that much concave, and also the arrow buttons are a bit smaller.
Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 – Performance:
The new Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is equipped with an Intel 2.5 –GHz Core i7-6500U, a RAM of 8GB, and an SSD of 256GB. Practically, the Radius 12 can take about nineteen seconds opening a seventy GB file document Word in OpenOffice. On a spreadsheet, however, it takes approximately thirteen minutes to pair twenty thousand items and addresses, attributes that make it good enough for any business.
Arguably, the greatest disappointment associated with Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is the below- average life of the battery, with the mean time being approximately five hours and fifteen minutes.
Apart from the usual suites of the Toshiba computers, this Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 comes with a couple of useful utility apps such as Chroma Tune, which enables you to change the profile color in use to either of the following: Adobe RGB, Technicolor, Warm and Rec. 709.
Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 – Price and Verdict.
The most typical brands of this model are the 4K display and the one having the 1080p screen brand. However, the most prolific setting of the two is the 4K model, and costs $1300, it comes with a RAM of 8GB, SSD of 256GB capacity, and the processor mentioned earlier.
The other model of 1080p is equipped with a Core i5 processor of 6200U, an SSD of 256GB and a RAM of 8GB, and costs $800.
This brand produces a 4K display which is brilliant and satisfactory. Its design is also compact and appealing.
Apart from the Touchpad being located too far to its left, the below-average battery life is also a huge concern.
Despite being characterized by a battery life that is very low, this computer has a lot to offer. Ranging from excellent display to a performance which is great, from being convertible to its relatively smaller size, this kind of machine is just worth the money and offers a lot.
