Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 P50W-C-102
Flexible piece of gold. The new Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 is one of the few convertibles with a large 15.6-inch display. Thanks to the special hinges, you can use different operating modes, but do they make any sense for such a big device?

I'm impressed by the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15. Although it's a fair amount more expensive than its convertible rivals, it justifies the price with its impressive screen, great battery life and stylish chassis. You do pay more for the laptop's convertible nature and touchscreen, and if you just need a laptop you're much better off buying a general-purpose model, which at this price will have significantly more power. If you'd like to take advantage of Windows 10's touchscreen capabilities and like to watch films on your laptop or use it in the kitchen, though, it's a good choice.

In short, the Toshiba Satellite Radius isn’t a bad machine at all. The only weak spot is the touchpad, but that can be fixed with judicious use of the touchscreen, disabling gesture controls or plugging in an external mouse. In performance, it matches up with similarly priced alternatives, and it certainly looks the part. It feels a touch too big to be truly useful as a hybrid, though: I can’t see people using a 15in laptop in tablet mode very often.
