Toshiba Radius 12 Review

Posted on 21 January 2016 Tags: Computers, Feature, Laptops

Toshiba is mostly known for producing the best home appliances, so when it comes to making laptops, the company has not been able to deliver the same results and their efforts have usually fallen short. However, with the new Toshiba Radius 12, things can be a little different. The laptop contains all the features you would primarily need like a Technicolor certified screen option, a light weight design, and a 350 hinge, but for its low price, Toshiba has had to compromise on lower screen resolution and low tech screen.

The Good
The Toshiba Radius 12 features a lightweight design, which makes it easier for you to carry around at work or at school. The keyboard is comfortable to use and has sufficient gaps, making typing easy and smooth. The laptop also features a greater amount of ports compared to its competitors so it is fairly easy for you to connect multiple devices at the same time.

The highlight of the laptop is the 4k Technicolor screen option, this allows you to view crisp and vibrant images, more than any other laptop you would find in the same price range.

The Bad
Unfortunately even with its 4k Technicolor Screen option, the battery life is worst class, which would not make it the most ideal laptop for people who are always on the go and need a laptop for daily use. In addition the overall design of the Toshiba Radius 12 is fairly simple compared to its rival machines. The touch pad can also be frustrating to use and does not offer much flexibility.

Bottom Line
Despite its low battery life, the Toshiba Radius 12 can still claim fast performance, offers a generous selection of ports and allows you to view high quality and vibrant images. This may be one of the best laptops made by Toshiba but unfortunately it is still far from the best compared to its rivals.
