Today Toshiba launched a new convertible notebook called the Satellite Radius 11, an 11.6 inch ultra portable that offers five usage modes in a similar way to what we have seen on the Lenovo Yoga series. The Radius will arrive in two versions, sporting a choice of either a Celeron or Pentium Bay Trial-based processors from Intel. Mobile Geeks get hands on at IFA 2014:

The Radius 11 is a great example of how the affordable mobile PC has now evolved to offer more variation in terms of usage. Designs like the Lenovo Yoga are inspiring more affordable alternatives to the standard clam-shell notebook PC. The Radius uses a two stage hinge to offer several modes of operation that include Tablet mode, Tent Mode etc. This means that devices like the Radius 11 can easily switch from content creation to content consumption devices in moments.
The Toshiba Radius sports an IPS LED display with a resolution of 1366 v 768. In terms of memory and storage you are getting a large but not so impressively fast 500GB hard drive with 4GB of RAM. In terms of connectivity you get a full size HDMI port, one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 port plus an SD card reader and standard headphone jack. The device supports WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.
The Satellite Radius 11 According to Acer the Radius 11 will be available in Q4 of this year.
