All in all, the Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 left us wanting. It looks good on the outside, with an attractive silver chassis and compelling two-in-one premise, but we would have appreciated a display with a higher resolution, a little less bezel and more screen, and fewer reflection and brightness issues.

The Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 offers a good 2-in-1 experience for an aggressive price. The design not only feels sturdy, but it's also easy to change from one mode to another. However, it's not the best hybrid in its class. The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 has a better display, a less cramped keyboard and even longer battery life.

All of this would relegate the Radius 11 to the dustbin if it weren’t so amazingly cheap. At $380 the device is less expensive than just about anything else on the market in this category. To get much cheaper you’d need to drop down to a tablet like the Surface, eschew the touchscreen, or go with an older model device. All of those may actually be the right play, but if you’re looking for this collection of features in a very inexpensive, sub-three-pound package, you could do worse than the Radius 11.

Comment

Model: The Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L15W-B1310 is a cost friendly laptop that has a special hinge to enable the display to flip into a tablet form. The chassis is crafted with style and looks premium with subtle patterns on the front cover. Lines are kept clean and the raised tile keyboard has a nice responsive feel. The 11.6 inch HD TruBrite LED backlit IPS display is able to fold 360 degrees.

The Windows 8.1 system is equipped with an Intel Celeron N2840 processor, 2 GB DDR3L clocked at 1600 MHz and mobile Intel HD Graphics. Storage memory comes in the form of a 500 GB HDD which enables plenty content to be stored. Users will certainly enjoy the portability and capability packed into this device. Other technology available on the Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L15W-B1310 is a memory card reader, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 USB 3.0 port, HDMI output, Bluetooth 4.0, and HD webcam.

The complete package weighs in at around 2.9 lbs (1.32 kg) and battery life is good with 5.25 hours of usage time from the 2 cell Li-Ion pack. The Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L15W-B1310 is made for users looking to capitalize on dual functionality devices for added convenience.

Series: Like other 2-in-1 designs, the Radius 11 offers both laptop and tablet functionality. Instead of a detachable docking tablet, the laptop hinge allows the screen to be folded back into other positions. The modes include laptop, tablet, tabletop (folded flat), presentation (propped up like a tent), and audience (touchscreen shown with keyboard folded back as a base). When closed, the Radius 11 measures 2.18 x 28.96 x 19.81 cm (0.86 x 11.4 x 7.8 inch) and weighs 1.32 kg (2.9 pound). The Radius 11 is a budget laptop that comes with a 11.6 inch touchscreen. The 1366 x 768 resolution display is reasonably bright and clear. The laptop keyboard has a basic chiclet-style design, with black square keys but no backlight, so using the keyboard in a dimly lit environment might be troublesome. It features all the keys you would normally expect to find on a notebook, but many have been shrunk to fit its small frame.

When the display is folded back, the keyboard is automatically disabled, and automatic screen rotation is turned on. The Satellite Radius 11 is powered by an Intel Celeron processor, a budget dual-core design designed for low end consumer laptops, coupled with 4 GB of RAM. It's functional, but noticeably slow, even when performing very basic tasks, like opening a new browser tab. It will do for things as simple as typing or checking email and Facebook, streaming videos. However, most other tasks will be a bit sluggish. Storage comes in the form of a 500 GB hard disk. Ports and connectors are limited, but no more so than many ultraportable-class laptops today. Two USB ports are included, USB 3.0 on the left side and USB 2.0 on the right side. There's an HDMI output for connecting a monitor, TV or projector, and an SDXC slot for memory cards. A single 3.5 mm headset jack allows connection of earphones with mic for video chats. In addition, it also features a webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, and built in stereo speakers.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
