Can I show you guys something cool? You've probably seen me post a bit about "Hybrid" laptops and how utterly awesome they are...but they just got better. They still transform from a laptop (work mode) to a tablet (play mode), but facial recognition? Gorilla Glass? Super-fast speeds? Sounds like the future.

The latest offering from Toshiba is the Satellite Radius 12 laptop, out just in time for holiday gifting (and who wouldn't squee when they opened this?!), now at Best Buy. You know they have all of the cool toys.

With the launch of Windows 10 and it's incredible new features, now is the time to gear up and get a laptop built with the expert technologies, flexible 2-in-1 design, and fast mobile performance that will make your Windows 10 experience so much better.

The Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 is the world’s first 12.5-inch convertible laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display. You know when you walk into the electronics section and see all of the TVs on display and most of them look meh while there are a few that look amazing? Those are the 4K Ultra HD displays.
This baby is designed with color accuracy in mind. The Technicolor-certified wide gamut RGB display supports 100% Adobe RGB color space reproduction, making it an ideal choice for mobile content creators and action cam enthusiasts. On this screen, what’s shot with the camera can be viewed with the same color fidelity, making editing a breeze. Have you ever shot a photo or a video, uploaded it to your laptop and realized it looked awful. So you "fix" it, save it, and upload it online only to realize that you didn't fix it, you made it look terrible. That's because your laptop likely is using another color space than the device you recorded it with. Oops.

The Satellite Radius 12 is designed to travel with its sleek, highly-mobile, compact design. And if you've ever cracked the glass on a tablet or smartphone, you'll appreciate that it has a damage-resistant screen made from Gorilla Glass. The keyboard has an LED backlight (Yes, I sometimes type in the dark too), and a 360-degree precision hinge enables greater flexibility as the screen rotates into five unique viewing modes, giving the right view for every occasion. Are you working, surfing the web, or watching a movie? Just flip it to your favorite position.

I've saved the coolest for last: Designed for Windows 10, the Satellite Radius 12 is one of the first small-screen PC’s to enable facial authentication with Windows Hello, enabling a more personal and convenient way to log in to your laptop. It’s also among the first Windows laptops to run on the power and performance of Intel’s new 6th generation Core processors, delivering maximum mobile performance for mobile content creators and multi-taskers.

What do you think of the newest Hybrid on the block? Have you tried Windows 10 yet? What's your favorite feature? I love to hear your comments!
