Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the Satellite Radius 11, a value-priced 2-in-1 convertible PC with a two-axis hinge that rotates 360-degrees, allowing the device to easily convert from laptop to tablet by just pushing back the 11.6-inch touchscreen. Powered by Intel and Windows 8.1, the Radius 11 starts at $329.99 MSRP.
"We expect Satellite Radius 11 to make the grade with consumers and students looking for a highly-portable PC that gives them a bit more flexibility than a traditional clamshell laptop without cutting corners," said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. "Our device is sleek, lightweight and delivers plenty of power to handle everyday tasks. The fact that it has a rotational screen just further opens up the range of possibilities for what you can do with it."
Move seamlessly from work to play - and back again. A unique, 360-degree, two-axis, "flip-and-fold" hinge enables five distinct usage modes: Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. A vibrant 11.6-inch diagonal, HD TruBrite touchscreen display makes the most of the five viewing modes, giving plenty of room to consume as well as create.
A smart-locking feature automatically disables the keyboard, protecting the keys, and prevents mishaps in tablet mode. A full-size keyboard delivers more comfortable typing with contoured raised tile keys and less key-bounce.
Sleek, slim and lightweight at less than three pounds and topped with a trendy patterned light gold finish, Satellite Radius 11's compact design makes it easy to carry. Featuring a fanless design, the laptop can be configured with the latest Intel Pentium or Celeron processor, up to 4 GB of RAM and either 32 GB of speedy Flash memory or a spacious 500 GB hard drive.
The laptop also includes an HD webcam, plus a range of ports, including one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, HDMI and an SD card slot.

The Satellite Radius 11 will be available for purchase beginning October 26, 2014, for a starting price of $329.99 MSRP at major retailers, e-tailers and direct from Toshiba on toshiba.com/us.
