New models ship in June, exclusive to Best Buy
Alongside an array of tablets, Toshiba today announced a refresh of its Satellite laptop line. Debuting today are the Satellite Radius convertible, and the Satellite Click 2 and Click 2 Pro detachable PCs. Both models are exclusive to Best Buy, and will debut in June.
The Satellite Radius is what Toshiba calls a "5-in-1" laptop with a 360-degree "flip-and-fold" design featuring 15.6-inch diagonal Full HD (1920x1080) touchscreen display. A two-axis hinge design enables five usage modes: Laptop mode, Tablet mode with a full 360-degree screen rotation, Tabletop mode with 180-degree pivot, Presentation mode at a 270-330 degree angle for a rear-facing screen for sharing content and presentations with groups, and Audience mode: A 270-315 degree flip that hides the keyboard under the display for a hands-free movie-watching experience.
Haswell fourth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor drive the machine, coupled with 8GB RAM and up to 1TB of hard drive storage. Harman Kardon speakers provide audio. The overall form factor measures 0.75 inches at its thinnest, and weighs less than 4.85 pounds.
Available in late June, the Satellite Radius starts at $926 and is sold exclusively at Best Buy and on Toshiba's website.
The Satellite Click 2 and Click 2 Pro are detachable PCs, featuring 13.3-inch Full HD (192 x1080) removable display. The Click 2 has 4GB of RAM with an Intel Pentium processor, with the Click 2 Pro sporting a Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. The Click 2 features Skullcandy audio, with the Click 2 Pro having Harmon Kardon speakers.
The Click 2 will sell for $587, with the Click 2 Pro retailing for $1,029 and up, depending on configuration.
