A 4K Screen On a Convertible Laptop Is Wonderful, Beautiful Overkill.

New Delhi: Toshiba has brought 4K display technology to its latest 2-in-1 convertible laptop, Satellite Radius 12, which the company claims is the world’s first 12.5-inch UHD 4K convertible. Toshiba Gulf FZE introduces the new Satellite S50W, one of the latest hybrid laptops with touch display, engineered for business professionals who are always on the move. But change is afoot — first, with a surprisingly good full HD Chromebook, then a cheap-and-quite-cheerful Windows convertible, and now a fantastically bonkers 12.5-inch convertible laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display. With a 15.6-inch Full HD Display, the Satellite S50W includes the latest Intel® processors and operates on Windows 8.1, and is also Windows 10 ready.

The convertible laptop further includes Microsoft’s Windows Hello feature that allows users to log in the device with just their face or fingerprint. This display is powered by Intel’s newly released Skylake processors up to Core i7, which will be paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage.

Its’ multi-mode capacity and allows for reading, working, gaming and entertainment.” The Satellite S50W’s lightweight characteristic, allows you to enjoy your fast paced, always on-the-go lifestyle, but not having to settle with anything less than a fully capable notebook. At this point I’d like to direct all audio/visual purists to the comment section below to vent over whether an UltraHD display is worth it on a screen this size. For the rest of us, let’s just back away very, very slowly and move on, albeit not before noting that the Satellite Radius 12’s color accuracy is certified by Technicolor and supports 100 percent Adobe RGB color space reproduction. Sandor van der Ham, vice president of Toshiba’s B2C PC Lifestyle Products and Services Group, said: “We’re proud to be the first to release a 12.5in Ultra HD 4K convertible and have worked closely with our partners such as Microsoft and Intel to include the latest technologies. “Users will be able to benefit from full Windows 10 functionality while experiencing the power of 6th gen Intel Core processors. Of course, resolution is not actually everything: Windows has a well-documented problem handling high-resolution displays, and after a point, adding more pixels doesn’t actually do anything to make the picture better — they become too small to see with the naked eye.

If it’s the former (quite possible in a machine weighing under three pounds), then that high-resolution screen will just slow everything down, and you’ll end up watching a very pretty but very slow slideshow. Apart from the screen, we don’t know too much: it’s a convertible laptop that can fold all the way back into a tablet, or anything in between, with an aluminium body, Gorilla Glass screen, USB-C support (though not for charging), and integration for Windows 10’s facial recognition login.

PC manufacturers are gearing up to release some solid Windows 10 machines packed with Intel’s new Skylake processors that can easily handle extra features like UltraHD screens and infrared cameras for Windows Hello. While you wait, now is the perfect time to peruse the tech news, as most manufacturers are showing off their late 2015/early 2016 gear during IFA Berlin.
