Cortana gets her own button on Toshiba’s back-to-school Satellite and Radius laptops.

Toshiba’s new Satellite Radius 15 is an update to last year’s model, adding an aluminium enclosure, Windows 10-specific keyboard shortcuts and a pixel-packed 15.6-inch 4K display.Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced Satellite Fusion™, a sleek, large-screen convertible PC that offers new ways to accelerate work and play from a single, full-powered device.

The company is going all in with Cortana by integrating a button to summon Microsoft’s personal digital assistant—and perhaps more importantly, dual-array mics, so she can hear your voice commands. Equipped with the latest performance options, features and technologies, like ultra-fast Wireless-AC, illuminating keyboard and a Full HD 1080p screen option, Satellite Fusion is a versatile laptop offering great value for every occasion. 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).

The way you use it hasn’t changed, however; the display can still be flipped into five different positions depending on how you want to interact with the screen. Satellite Fusion features a precision 2-axis hinge that rotates the screen from zero to 360-degrees into five unique viewing modes for just the right angle on every occasion. Although it seems like every picture you see in the news is of a class rolling $1,400 brushed-aluminum computers, the vast majority of college kids don’t and can’t spend that much. Users can get to work in Laptop mode, share their screen with a group in Presentation mode, or lay it flat and collaborate with others in Tabletop mode.

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. 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. It features a frameless TruType LED-backlit keyboard and modern buttonless touchpad, all encased within a fashion-forward Satin Gold Finish body that measures less than one-inch thick.

The device is packed with a wide range of ports, including an HDMI® port with 4K output, a memory card reader, two USB 3.0 ports6 and one USB 2.0 port with USB Sleep & Charge technology7 to enable the charging of additional USB-powered devices even when the PC is powered off. 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. Though, as has been the case for some time, she failed to materialise on our pre-production test unit due to not yet being available outside of the US. Its 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch sizes start at $720 and $875, respectively, but you could pay more to get more goodies, such as a 4K (3840×2160-pixel) display, quad-core Intel Broadwell CPUs, or discrete Nvidia graphics. While being able to flip the notebook into different positions could be useful for propping it up to steam a movie or online TV, it’s still fairly cumbersome when held in tablet mode.

The device also includes a best-in-class audio package, featuring Onkyo® stereo speakers tuned by Skullcandy® and audio enhancement software by DTS®, so users can experience their music and content with immersive and accurate sound. Toshiba officials said they know most people will use this as a laptop primarily, but having the option of flipping the screen around will appeal to some. Together, these divisions provide digital products, services and solutions, including award-winning notebook computers, tablets and All-in-One computers, cloud services; imaging products for the security, medical and manufacturing markets; storage products for computers; and IP business telephone systems with unified communications, collaboration and mobility applications. Toshiba said the HDMI port on this model will also support 4K output via its HDMI, but because it’s HDMI 1.4, its refresh rate will top out at 30Hz.
