Why the Satellite Radius P55 2-in-1 is the best

The Satellite Radius P55 is Toshiba's answer to the trend of premium 2-in-1 laptops — with powerful hardware and a sleek body, this laptop will help you get through your workload and will look good doing it.

At first glance, you might mistake this laptop for something other than a Toshiba — its brushed aluminum body really draws your eye. Despite having a whole host of ports, including Ethernet, SD card reader, two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, and one HDMI, the laptop maintains a slim, 0.79-inch (2cm) profile.

The touchpad is offset to the left of the body, but centered under the main body of the backlit keyboard — because there's a full number pad to the right (you don't see that often). Typing is comfortable thanks to perfectly spaced keys and ample key travel. As far as hardware goes, the Satellite P55 boasts a Skylake Intel Core i7-6500U processor with a clock speed up to 3.10GHz, 12GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 1TB SATA hard-disk drive.

The defining feature of this laptop is its 4K touch display — it really is beautiful. The colors and contrast are nearly perfect, and it is bright enough to use even outside on sunny days. If you love Toshiba laptops, this one is a must-buy if only for the display — models start at about $760.
