Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L10-B-101
Maximum Flexibility. That's how Toshiba introduces a number of new convertibles on their German website. The series is supposed to merge the most important features of both notebooks and tablets into a single unit. If Toshiba succeeded we are going to determine during our review of the first model in the series, which retails for 400 Euro.

Toshiba's Satellite Radius 11 is an example of a budget 2-in-1 done wrong. Its weak performance, dim display and laughably short battery life make for a system that you'd only give to someone you don't like. In the end, the Radius 11's biggest selling point is its price, which at $350 is $100 less than budget 2-in-1s from manufacturers such as Dell and HP. But even at such a low price, it's still not worth buying.

The Satellite Radius looks relatively cheap at £329, assisted by Toshiba pocketing additional revenue from the third-party services that are configured into the machine. As a laptop the L10W is rather slow, while an arguably superflous touchscreen means costs have been cut elsewhere to accommodate this divisive feature. But if your checklist is confined to the hybrid combo of overweight tablet and underperforming laptop, the Toshiba ticks all boxes.
