The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is a convertible notebook with a 12.5 inch display, an Intel Skylake processor, and a case that measures just 0.6 inches thick and which weighs about 2.9 pounds.

Toshiba introduced the Satellite Radius 12 in September, and now the company has announced that it’ll be available for purchase starting October 18th for $1000 and up.


If you opt for the $1000 model, you’ll get a version with a 1920 x 1080 pixel display. Want something a little more fancy? Toshiba also has a version with a 3840 x 2160 pixel display and a starting price of $1300.

Both models have IPS displays with wide viewing angles, 350-nits of brightness, and Corning Gorilla Glass for scratch resistance.

Other features include Harman Kardon speakers, Windows 10 software, and support for facial recognition using Windows Hello thanks to an infrared camera. The notebook has a backlit keyboard and features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, an HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports, and one USB Type-C connector with USB 3.1 support. The laptop will be available with 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of solid state storage.

Toshiba says the Satellite Radius 12 with a full HD display has a brushed metal silver design, while the model with an Ultra HD screen has a carbon gray brushed metal finish.

  1. I can’t believe how much these Bozos are charging for 12.1-13.3 inch laptops when I can buy a 13.3 inch Chromebook for under $300. If I have to pay over $500, a 13.3 inch Macbook Air is my computer of choice.

  2. That’s the point, you get your ultra book but then when you just want a tablet, you get it too.

  3. maybe I am just too old-school but I don’t get the allure of these 2-in-1’s. At 3 pounds it’s too heavy for a tablet. But the specs are good for an ultrabook, altho the price is pretty high.
