Toshiba unveils a 12-inch convertible laptop with a 4K display

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12

Toshiba may have been, er, less than original when it unveiled its Yoga-like Satellite Radius series, but the latest model in its laptop-slash-tablet line does quite a lot to stand on its own merits. The newly launched Satellite Radius 12 packs a 12.5-inch 4K touchscreen into a compact convertible that measures a scant 0.6 inches thick and weighs 2.9 pounds. That’s more than a little impressive when you consider that Lenovo’s equally new (and equally light) ThinkPad Yoga 260 sticks you with a 1080p display. You’ll also get your choice of speedier, longer-lived 6th-generation Intel Core processors and an infrared camera that can sign you in using facial recognition. Slideshow-316541

The PC maker is shy about the Radius 12’s full specs and price at this point. However, it’s hard to imagine a 4K screen giving you all-day battery life in a system that’s so small, and you just know that this won’t be a budget computer. We’re also curious to know how well Windows 10 scales graphics on such a pixel-dense monitor. If Toshiba can pull this off well enough, though, this might be one of the hottest two-in-ones when it reaches the US in the fourth quarter of the year.
