Toshiba is expanding its Radius line of convertible laptops… but shrinking the size of its latest model. The company’s first Toshiba Satellite Radius launched this summer as a 15.6 inch notebook which became a tablet when you pushed the screen back 360 degrees until it was resting opposite the keyboard.
The latest model is the Toshiba Satellite Radius 11, which features a smaller 11.6 inch display.
At 2.9 pounds, the new model is also a lot lighter than its nearly 5 pound predecessor. US pricing hasn’t yet been announced, but The Verge reports it’ll sell for £329 in the UK, which suggests it’ll also be a lot cheaper than the 15 inch model, which sells for around $900.
Update: Toshiba says the Satellite Radius 11 should be available in the United States in late October or early November, but the company isn’t ready to announce the price yet.
Toshiba’s new Satellite Radius 11 features a 1366 x 768 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. It’s powered by an Intel Celeron or Pentium processor.
It has USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, and an SD card reader as well as stereo speakers, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
