Toshiba said its Digital Products Division (DPD) has unveiled the Satellite Radius 11, a 2-in-1 convertible PC, for a starting price of $329.99.
Satellite Radius 11 will be available for purchase beginning October 26, 2014.
The device comes with a two-axis hinge that rotates 360-degrees. It can be easily converted from laptop to tablet by pushing back the 11.6-inch touchscreen.
The device is powered by Intel and runs Windows 8.1. It is an ideal gadget for consumers and students looking for more flexibility than a traditional clamshell laptop without cutting corners, said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Digital Products Division.
“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,” Osako added.
The 360-degree, two-axis, “flip-and-fold” hinge enables five distinct usage modes: Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience.
An 11.6-inch diagonal, HD TruBrite touchscreen display makes the most of the five viewing modes.
A smart-locking feature automatically disables the keyboard, protecting the keys, and prevents mishaps in tablet mode.
A full-size keyboard delivers more comfortable typing with contoured raised tile keys and less key-bounce.
The device weighs less than three pounds. Featuring a fanless design, the laptop can be configured with the latest Intel Pentium or Celeron processor4, up to 4GB of RAM5 and either 32GB of speedy Flash memory6 or a spacious 500GB hard drive7.
The laptop also includes an HD webcam, plus a range of ports, including one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, HDMI and an SD card slot.
