Toshiba launches new laptop range, including Yoga-esque Radius 15

Toshiba has launched its 2015 laptop range at a dedicated launch event in London.

The Japanese tech firm pulled the covers off a wide array of new laptops, all of which will hit the shelves in the third quarter of this year.

The headline-grabber is the Toshiba Satellite Radius 15, a 15-inch convertible with a screen that rotates all the way around – much like the Lenovo Yoga line.

The company says consumers will be able to use it in five different modes, namely laptop, tablet, presentation, audience and table-top (spread flat out on a desk).

It’s 20.1mm thick, weighing a hefty 2.25kg, and features a 15.6-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 IPS touchscreen. Powered by the fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor paired with up to 16GB of RAM, Toshiba says it’ll go for around seven hours between charges. It will be available from £599.

The Radius will initially ship with Windows 8.1 pre-installed, but the eagerly-anticipated Windows 10 will be available as a free upgrade when it eventually lands.

Toshiba has also launched a range of mid- and low-end laptops, including the Satellite L50-C and L70-C, the Satellite P series, Satellite C40-C, Satellite C70-C and C55-C.

The L50-C and L70-C are built for general, day-to-day use, and feature Full HD displays and either the fifth generation Intel Core i7 processor or the AMD A10-8700P accelerated processor.

Toshiba says that the P series, comprising the P50-C, P50t-C and P50D-C, is designed to deliver excellent performance.

The C40-C and C series, meanwhile, represent cheap additions to the line-up, though pricing once again hasn’t yet been revealed.

The former has a 14-inch HD screen and dual-core Intel Celeron processor, while consumers can choose between a 17.3-inch 1,600 x 900 display and a 15.6-inch 1,366 x 768 display for the alternative C series models.

They’ll also feature either a fifth-generation Intel Core i5 processor or an AMD A8-7410 chip, depending on your preferences.

The C series will start at £199, the L series will start at £329 and the P series will be available from £499.
