Laptops: Toshiba Satellite Radius brings the fold-back hinge to a bigger screen

1:21 /

The Yoga-like Radius has a 15.6-inch 1080p display, making it one of the biggest hybrids around.

[MUSIC] Toshiba takes a familiar concept and does something a little bit different with it, I'm Dan Ackerman, and we are taking a look at the Toshiba Satellite Radius. Now this is a 15.6 inch laptop, with a full 1080p touchscreen. And it has a hinge that you may have seen in some other systems before, it's kind of a 360-degree fold-back hinge that goes like this. The difference of course. Those other examples that we've seen of this, are all sort of smaller systems. It's the first time we're seeing this in a big 15 inch laptop, which makes sense. Because you'd wanna use a system like this, and it's a laptop mode, most of the time, and then maybe you want some flexibility. Let's say set it up in what I call kind of a, a kiosk mode like this. Or you could flip it around and use it as sort of a really big table tent. And of course, you can fold it down, and then you've got, you know, it's a big tablet. It's not, it's not a tablet you'd throw in your bag and take on a plane with you, but at least you can carry it around like in this form. Interestingly, there's actually a little extra magnet right here in the back, that holds the screen a little tighter when you have it folded over in that tablet mode. And of course, they've got a little rubber ridge right here, so if the keyboard is facing down against your table, it's not gonna rub up against your table surface. Typical Core i5 or Core i7 configurations, starts at a little bit under $1,000, and of course you can trade up to a Core i7 CPU. I'm Dan Ackerman and that's C Toshiba Satellite Radius. [MUSIC]
