Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 Review

 

For a professional on the go, the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 will fit comfortably into any briefcase, and will impress those around you when you show off its dark, brushed-metal finish. The 1080p Radius 12 has a very similar design that switches the...

Brilliant 4K display; Attractive, compact design; Good specs for the money

Short battery life; Touchpad is too far to the left

A brilliant 4K display, a portable and attractive design, and above-average performance are spoiled by short battery life.

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 review

 

The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 crams an incredible number of features into a 12.5-inch Windows notebook. On paper, it looks amazing.

The small and light Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is packed with features, including a Core i7 CPU, a face-recognizing camera and a 4K touchscreen display that bends over backward into a tablet configuration.

You won't make it through a day with the Radius 12's sub-par battery life. The keyboard is a little difficult to type on and the touchpad can be downright frustrating.

Buyers who plan to take full advantage of the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12's excellent 4K screen might get their money's worth. If you want a computer for getting work done, look elsewhere.

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 Review and Ratings

 

Toshiba shrinks a brilliant 4K display to 12.5 inches and puts it in a 2.9-pound convertible that makes Apple's Retina-screened MacBooks look myopic. We don't love every detail, but we're impressed.

Marvelously sharp and bright 4K display ; Infrared camera for Windows Hello facial recognition ; USB 3.1 Type C port

You'll squint to see text in older apps ; Shallow keyboard ; Not as fast as we were hoping a "Skylake" Core i7 would be

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 review

 

The best 4K screen on a portable, stylish, hybrid Ultrabook

Smart design and ergonomics ; Incredibly colorful screen ; Peppy performance

Strange keyboard layout ; Dismal battery life

While this 12-inch 2-in-1 laptop boasts one of the best-looking Ultra HD displays and impressive performance, it has major flaws to fix.

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 P20W-C-106 review

 

Toshiba is aiming for the premium touch with this 2-in-1 laptop, an ultraportable with a 12.5in screen that also works as a tablet. Here's our Satellite Radius 12 review

Bagging a 4K UHD display may seem impressive but here is wasted on a little ultrabook. A small battery plus high-res touchscreen equals foreshortened runtime. The Radius is quick but annoying on too many levels. For a better overall experience, try the...

Toshiba's new Radius 12 hybrid gives you a 4K touchscreen and high-end specs for $1,299 (hands-on)

 

After years of making cheap, plastic computers, Toshiba's Satellite Radius 12 stands out. It's got practically everything you'd want in a thin and light Windows 10 laptop, all encased in a shiny metal frame. It includes powerful processors, gobs of...

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 review

 

It's not the longest-lasting laptop in the world, but the Satellite Radius 12 offers a huge improvement on the Satellite Radius 15, being faster, more compact and in possession of a spectacularly sharp 4K display.

Market-leading screen resolution, speedy Intel Skylake CPU, compatible with Windows Hello, wide range of ports

Poor battery life, trackpad could be smoother, heaps of bloatware

Consumer review by: queebe (cnet.com)

Great for the value!

 

The computer overall is very efficient and . But if you are thinking of having this laptop on your lap most of the time, I suggest you buy a cooling pad because this notebook gets extremely hot. That is no problem unlike the unreliable touch-pad which...

You wont be dissapointed, ignore the reviews

 

I purchased this laptop from Pc world / Currys (even though the salesman was terrible!) I had done my homework before and I used to work for Toshiba.

Build quality, Screen, performance, keyboard

Nothing so far
