Toshiba today announced a new laptop hybrid called Satellite Radius. Satellite Radius design is strikingly similar to that of Lenovo Yoga because you have got the 360 degree hinge. It allows you to enjoy the device in one of the following five modes.
- Laptop mode: A unique 135-degree angle view ideal for productivity.
- Tablet mode: A full 360-degree screen fold conveniently transforms the device into a big-screen tablet.
- Tabletop mode: Collaborate on a screen that lays flat at a 180-degree angle.
- Presentation mode: Fold to a 270-330 degree angle for a rear-facing screen ideal for sharing content and presentations with groups.
- Audience mode: A 270-315 degree flip that hides the keyboard under the display for a hands-free movie-watching experience.
You can get the device with either an Intel Core i5 processor and a 750GB hard drive for $926, or a Core i7 CPU and a 1TB drive for $1049. These models come with 1920×1080 IPS display, 8GB of RAM, LED-backlit keyboards, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The Satellite Radius features premium speakers from Harman Kardon®, a leader in premium audio, complemented by audio processing by DTS Sound™ delivering rich and natural ‘studio-quality’ audio. The laptop also includes ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi® ideal for streaming movies and music, plus Intel WiDi5 wireless display support technologies. Additionally, the included HDMI® port supports 4K output to compatible HDTVs, enabling consumers to enjoy the highest quality video currently possible.

A variety of ports extend the convertible’s functionality, including three USB 3.0 ports6, one with Toshiba’s USB Sleep & Charge technology7 that enables the charging of USB-powered electronics even when the device is powered off.
