Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 P20W-C-106

82.4% Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 P20W-C-106 Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Little jack-of-all-trades. Toshiba's new Satellite Radius 12 can be used as both a tablet and a laptop. High-performance hardware meets high-quality casing materials, and a 4K screen rounds off the bundle. However, we would have expected more in some aspects in view of the high price.

There's no doubt that Toshiba packed a lot into a little package with the Radius 12. The 4K version of the laptop has an amazing display and great performance, and it packs all that into a convertible weighing just less than 3 pounds. The 1080p Radius 12 may not feature as brilliant a screen, but its added battery life makes it more useful for anyone spending time away from a desk.

A 4K laptop with compromises
Source: Engadget English
I like the Toshiba Radius 12 more than I thought I would. When confronted with the poor battery life results early in my testing process, it was easy to assume that between that, the flat-looking keyboard, and Toshiba's unimpressive track record in ultraportables, that the company had taken another wrong turn.

Our enthusiasm for the Satellite Radius 12 has waned since that first hands-on test, owing mainly to the battery life and the trackpad, but the feeling persists that this is a very capable little convertible. It's impossible to deny the quality of the display or the powerful performance, and at £1,000 it's expensive but still reasonably priced compared with its closest competitors. This device alone won't do much to reverse Toshiba's woes, but at least the beleaguered company can be proud of how well - mostly - it turned out.

70% A well-specified ultraportable, but with too many flaws and annoyances
Source: PC Advisor English
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 ZenBook UX303UA which is £100 cheaper.

There's no doubt that Toshiba packed a lot into a little package with the Radius 12. The laptop has an amazing display and great performance, and it packs all that into a convertible weighing just less than 3 pounds. However, all that portability and performance goes to waste if you run out of juice, and that's where the Radius 12 really suffers.

In some ways, the Satellite Radius 12 is an amazing achievement. It's a lightweight, compact machine that you can almost forget you're carrying in your briefcase or backpack. It's got a screen that will knock your and Apple's socks off, and the processing chops to go with it if you're into video editing. Its USB 3.1 port will come in handy as an alternative to Thunderbolt when you're plugging in external storage for those video projects.

A good screen makes a big difference and the one on the Toshiba Radius 12 is a stunner. The 4K version will be just £1,000 when it launches, too, so it's good value for a high-resolution, calibrated screen. The rest of the laptop seems pretty decent, making this an attractive option if you're looking to upgrade your laptop this year.

Hands-on with the 4K convertible laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is a nice little laptop in a stylish, compact and versatile design thanks to the 360 degree hinge. The specs are also tasty including a Skylake processor and 4K screen but the price is the thing which worries us at the moment. We're waiting for the UK figure but we imagine it will only be good value to buy the Full HD model.

Comment

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
6500U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.5":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
1.32 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan.

Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.


71.04%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
