Toshiba's new Satellite Click 10 looks like an enticing 2-in-1 for budget-minded business travelers who can't afford the Surface 3. The 10-inch hybrid device ships with a snap-on keyboard and zippy performance from an Intel Atom x5 processor for just $349. That’s $50 less than the Surface 3, which starts at $499 for just the tablet, with the keyboard sold separately for an extra $129. Of course, you'll make some sacrifices by opting for the Satellite Click 10 over the pricier Surface 3. The Click 10 has a compact 10.1-inch, 1900 x 1200-pixel display, compared with Surface 3's larger 10.8-inch, 1920 x 1280-pixel screen. The Surface 3 also runs on a slightly speedier Atom X7 CPU. Plus, the Click 10 lacks active pen support, so it's not an option for digital note-takers. The Surface 3 is compatible with Microsoft's excellent N-Trig digitizer pen, which is sold separately for $50 and offers full pressure sensitivity for writing right on the tablet's display.

Toshiba's Satellite Radius boasts fast performance, long battery life and a versatile design at a competitive price, making it an enticing option for workers. However, undersize keys and a few sharp edges make the 14-inch laptop less comfortable to use than it could be. Like other 2-in-1 hybrid laptops, the Radius 14 distinguishes itself from traditional notebooks with a flexible hinge that lets you fold the display back a full 360 degrees to use the device like a large tablet. You also have the option to use the keyboard as a stand to prop up the touch screen. That really comes in handy when you want to use your computer in cramped quarters, such as on an airplane tray table. But what makes the Radius 14 stand out from similar hybrids is its speedy performance, thanks to its zippy 2.1-GHz Intel Core i3 5015U processor with 6GB of RAM. That hardware helped it rack up an impressive score of 4,671 on the Geekbench 3 test, which measures overall performance. That beats competing … [Read more...] about Toshiba Satellite Radius 14: Is It Good for Business?
Working on a 12-inch laptop doesn't feel so cramped when you have a supersharp 4K display. That's what you get in Toshiba's Satellite Radius 12: a compact, powerful work machine with high-enough resolution for serious productivity. A versatile folding hinge that lets you use the device like a tablet is just a bonus. Unfortunately, a few glaring weaknesses limit the Radius 12's business potential. Its battery life is too short, and its keyboard and touchpad were victims of some odd design choices. But can strong performance and a brilliant display make this $1,299 notebook worth the money? At 2.93 lbs., the Radius 12 is noticeably more portable than rival 12-inch hybrids like the ThinkPad Yoga 12 (3.52 lbs.). That makes Toshiba's laptop the more attractive pick for commuters and frequent travelers who don't want to lug a heavy machine around. On the other hand, the Radius 12 is heftier than many standard 12-inch laptops, including the HP EliteBook Folio 1020 (2.68 lbs.) and … [Read more...] about Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 (4K) Review: Is It Good for Business?

It comes in two hardware configurations — one with a super-sharp 4K display, and one with a standard 1080p display – and workers would be wise to opt for the latter.

The other day I shared some satellite images from Google Maps of an aircraft dumping ground near Arizona in US.If that set of images left you impressed, Scott Stevens suggests that you re-visit the same location but using Bing Maps. (If this link doesn’t work, please switch to the US edition of Bing first.)The images on Bing are captured at an effective distance of 20 feet from the ground and hence the level of detail is so amazing compared to Google Maps where the distance was 50 feet.If you want to see a more high-resolution satellite image, check this secret spot from a village in South Africa capture on Google Maps – here the effective ground distance is only 5 feet or 2 meters.
