Thanks to the combination of a great price and stacked hardware, the Radius 15 is one of the few successful UHD laptops. It joins a small pantheon of 4K laptops, with the Asus ZenBook Pro UX501 being its closest exemplar. In some ways, the Radius 15 is a better overall system with a more vibrant screen, a sharper design that's also thinner and smaller to boot.

This 1080p Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 P55W offers plenty of premium features. The brushed-metal exterior is modern and attractive, the speakers are loud and forceful, and even though the screen doesn't provide a 4K resolution, it looks just as bright and colorful as more expensive models.

If battery life isn't a huge concern - such as for those who stick to their desks, with only occasional meetings - the Satellite Radius 15's vibrant display, dependable multitasking performance and relatively affordable price give it the edge over many of its rotating convertible rivals.

Starting at £599 for the Full HD version (pricing for the 4K version is yet to be revealed, but expect it to be quite a chunk more), the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 is shaping up to be a solid offering and one that ticks a number of boxes if you seek an attractive, well-built and highly configurable notebook that happens to be flexible too.

At a very reasonable £599, the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 is a laptop to keep your eye on, particularly if you're after a large-screened computer. However, it faces fierce competition from the Asus Zenbook UX305, which costs £50 more. Build quality and battery life aren’t superb, but the hinge and touchscreen are excellent features.

Finally, new P-Series laptops are arriving in the form of the P50-C or touch-enabled P50t-C. Both are 15.6in and are 15% thinner than the outgoing model. The P50t-C will come with a 3,840x2,160 touch display with an IGZO display. The screen will also come pre-calibrated with ChromaTune for greater accuracy. Graphics performance will also be the best in the Satellite range, with a choice of a Nvidia GeForce GTX950M for dedicated graphics.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
