Toshiba’s Satellite Radius P55W-C5200X offers multimode 2-in-1 laptop functionality in a luxury and slim aluminum-topped package. The notebook can be used as a laptop, tablet, multimedia stand or tent, or as a table-top device. Toshiba hasn’t made big compromises in terms of comfort of use and computing performance, since the Radius P55W-C5200X has a full-size 15.6-inch display, excellent Intel Core i5 processor, and large RAM and hard drive sizes of 8GB and 750GB, respectively.
The display is not only touch-enabled and decently large, but also provides sharp 1080p picture and IPS-based wide viewing angles. The screen is powered by the Intel HD 5500 entry-level graphics, integrated in the Intel Core i5-5200U dual-core processor. The i5-5200U is a mid-range part, but provides sufficient power for smooth day-to-day work, plus some potential for more demanding media creation and other stuff. 8GB of system memory offers more than enough multitasking potential for everyday use. The 750GB hard drive storage is decently capacious too. Unfortunately, RAM and HDD are not user-upgradeable and there’s no built-in DVD drive.
Rounding off the feature set, the Satellite Radius P55W-C5200X includes stereo speakers, a 720p webcam, 802.11AC Wi-Fi, Bluetooth,HDMI video output jack, WiDi technology for wireless connection to external displays, three USB connectors, a media card reader, and a combo mic/headphone audio jack.
We have no info on battery life provided by the laptop’s mid-size 3-cell 45 Whr battery.
The P55W-C5200X comes with Windows 10 OS pre-installed, so you don’t have to bother with OS upgrades after you purchase the 2-in-1 notebook.
