Irvine, Calif. — Toshiba America Information Systems (TAIS) introduced Tuesday the Satellite Radius 11, a two-in-one convertible PC/tablet with an 11.6-inch touchscreen that can be used in five viewing modes: laptop, tablet, tabletop, presentation and audience.
Toshiba said the Radius 11, which carries a suggested retail starting at $329, features an unusual 360-degree, two-axis and “flip-and-fold” hinge design.
The unit is powered by an Intel processor (Pentium or Celeron depending on configuration) and Windows 8.1. It features a fanless design and includes an HD webcam and a range of ports: one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, HDMI and an SD card slot.
Other amenities include a configurable design allowing up to 4GB of RAM and either 32GB of flash memory or a 500GB hard drive.
The Satellite Radius 11 will be available Oct. 26, and will join the first Satellite Radius, which launched last May featuring a 15.6-inch screen.
“We expect Satellite Radius 11 to make the grade with consumers and students looking for a highly portable PC that gives them a bit more flexibility than a traditional clamshell laptop without cutting corners,” said Philip Osako, TAIS digital products division senior director of product marketing. “Our device is sleek, lightweight and delivers plenty of power to handle everyday tasks. The fact that it has a rotational screen just further opens up the range of possibilities for what you can do with it.”
A smart-locking feature automatically disables the keyboard, protecting the keys and preventing mishaps in tablet mode. A full-size keyboard delivers more comfortable typing with contoured raised tile keys and less key bounce.
