Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 P50W-C-102

The Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 is a convertible notebook, which can be used in various operating modes. As the model name indicates, it has a 15.6 inch touchscreen, which features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and supports 10-point multi touch input. An Intel Core i5-5200U with 8 GB of RAM is used to power this device. A conventional hard drive provides a storage capacity of 1 TB. Along the sides of this notebook, there are two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 port for connecting peripherals. There is no dedicated graphics card on this model as it is not meant for gaming. Hence, this device utilizes the Intel HD Graphics 5500 integrated in the processor for graphics processing. The total weight of this convertible device is 2.24 kg. With a thickness of 20.1 mm it is fairly sleek. The notebook's satin gold aluminum surface gives it a premium look and a sturdy build. The full sized keyboard is backlit and the touchpad supports multi touch input. This Toshiba convertible notebook runs on Windows 8.1 64-bit, which suits touchscreen input. Finally, this Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 is a well-built device with all the rudimentary characteristic that a notebook and a tablet should have.

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?
80% Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
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.

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.

5200U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.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.
