Amazingly it’s been 30 years since Tosh introduced the world’s first mass market laptop. Where does the time go? Things have certainly changed a bit since 1985 with this year’s IFA in Berlin seeing the Japanese company introducing the world’s first 12.5inch Ultra HD 4K convertible, the Satellite Radius 12.
Also new to the line up is the 10.1inch Satellite Click 10 (pictured above) which provides laptop and tablet functionality plus 14inch new Satellite Radius 14. The Satellite Radius 12, Satellite Radius 14 and existing Satellite P50t-C/P50-C models all feature new sixth generation Intel® CoreTM processors which were unveiled by Intel at this year’s event.
In addition, the Satellite Radius 12 is the first Toshiba model in Europe to feature the newest Windows 10 functionality including Windows Hello face recognition and Continuum for people wanting to switch between tablet and laptop modes.
Further enhancements to current models are showcased at IFA 2015 including a redesigned Satellite Radius 11 sporting a new smart, hairline design and the inclusion of the latest Intel® Celeron® and Intel® Pentium® processors. The Qosmio X70-B and Satellite P70-B are also updated to benefit from the latest AMD RadeonTM R9 M365X graphics with AMD EnduroTM Technology for gaming and multimedia.
As well as the range of PCs, IFA 2015 sees Toshiba announce a number of advanced storage products. These include five internal SATA hard drives for desktop PCs, laptops and consoles, tailored to support a diversified array of applications.
Of these, there are three 3.5” hard drives: the quiet E300 Low-Energy Desktop Hard Drive – intended for everyday use – the High-Performance P300 Desktop Hard Drive – designed to give your PC a powerful boost – and the X300 High-Performance Desktop Hard Drive, made for use with demanding applications such as design software and graphics-heavy games.
These are in addition to two 2.5” hard drives for laptop users: the L200 Mobile Hard Drive, and the H200 High-Performance Hybrid Drive – a solid state hybrid drive that has been designed to suit console and PC gamers’ needs.
Two new Solid State Drives (SSDs) will also be unveiled. The Q300 Pro is built on 2-bit per cell NAND flash technology for professional users and anyone else who requires an ultra-responsive performance. For those looking for the perfect upgrade from a conventional hard drive, there’s also the Q300, which is based on 3-bit per cell NAND flash technology.
