Do you enjoy tech, and find yourself daydreaming for the latest tech products? If you don’t, I’m willing to hazard a guess that there’s someone in your family that does. I love tech. Being a consumer as well as a computer sales account manager in my past life, I have developed an appreciation for how far tech has come over the years. Take computers, for example, They went from the size of a small building to the size of a small chest freezer to desktop to laptop to tablet. And now, the latest innovation in portable computing has arrived – the convertible laptop.
I’ve always been fascinated by convertibles. The first (and only) brand new car that I have ever purchased was a convertible. My love for the style of car continues to this day. Much in the way I am fascinated by a convertible car, I am also fascinated by convertible tech – specifically capable laptops that also function as a tablet would. Released just in time for the holiday season, the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is just such a creature.
The world’s first 12.5-inch convertible laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display , the Satellite Radius 12 arrived in Best Buy stores a little over a week ago. Designed for Windows 10, the Satellite Radius 12 is one of the first small-screen PC’s to enable facial authentication with Windows Hello, which gives consumers like you and I a more personal and convenient way to log in to the laptop. It’s also among the first Windows laptops to run on the power and performance of Intel’s new 6th generation Core processors, delivering maximum mobile performance for mobile content creators and multi-taskers.
Designed with travelers in mind, the compact Satellite Radius 12 features a Gorilla Glass damage resistant screen. Behind that screen is a Technicolor-certified wide gamut RGB display that supports 100% Adobe® RGB color space reproduction. Designed for color accuracy, this display makes it an ideal choice for mobile content creators and action cam enthusiasts. On this screen, what’s shot with the camera can be viewed with the same color fidelity, making editing a breeze. The Radius 12 design incorporates a 360-degree precision hinge, which enables greater flexibility as the screen rotates into five unique viewing modes – giving the right view for every occasion. The LED backlit keyboard will be especially appreciated in lower light conditions.
If you’ve been in a Best Buy at all in the past couple of years then you know they are a solid choice as a destination for new tech, including new mobile PC devices. With the launch of Windows 10, this is a great time to gear up and get a new laptop built with the expert technologies, flexible 2-in-1 design and fast mobile performance. The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 at Best Buy definitely falls into that category.
