Toshiba has this week announced a new convertible laptop called the Toshiba Satellite Radius 12.

What makes this laptop so interesting is that it claims to be the ‘world’s first’ laptop with an Ultra HD 4K 12.5 inch display, with a 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution. It is also equipped with a 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor, *GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a 512GB M.2 SATA solid state drive.

because of these specs it is widely seen as the Windows 10 version of Apple’s 12-inch MacBook with Retina display.

If you prefer you can just get a version with a Full HD display instead, cutting the price of the laptop.

The Radius 12 also has calibration technology that has been certified by Technicolor and ChromaTune, with Intel HD graphics 520, two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 4K-capable HDMI output.

There are also Harman Kardon speakers in-built, with a battery that is said to last 6 hours, or 8 hours with the Full HD display. The laptop will be available in satin gold with brushed aluminium, weighing in at 1.32kg and measuring 299.5 x 209 x 15.4mm.

Prices have not yet been announced for the laptop, but it will be available prior to Christmas, available in the UK in the 4th quarter of this year.
