Reviews for the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 P55W-C5212-4K
Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
The Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 P55W-C5212-4K certainly works well as a large-screen laptop for power users, with good, though not superb, performance, a brilliant 4K display, and excellent system memory and SSD storage capacity. However, as a convertible-hybrid laptop, it is simply too bulky and has a mediocre battery life for a system you'd expect to just grab and carry around. If you really need the processing power in a large-screen laptop with 4K resolution, then the Asus ZenBook Pro UX501J-DS71T is a better choice for about the same price. The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro remains our top pick for high-end convertible-hybrid laptops because it is thinner and lighter (hence, easier to use in Tablet mode), and it has longer battery life, both of which are more important for hybrid systems.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP).

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.
