Toshiba's convertible 4K laptop is somehow light, stylish and thin

Yes, 4K devices (that aren't TVs) are everywhere at IFA 2015. If it's not a Sony smartphone packing a ridiculous high-resolution display, then it's Samsung's Ultra HD Blu-ray player -- the first of its kind. Toshiba's getting involved too, with a convertible 4K 12.5-inch laptop. As is the case with most of the PCs and laptops spotted this year at Europe's biggest tech show, the Satellite Radius 12 has Intel's latest sixth-generation Core processor to power it, but still only measures 0.6 inch thick and weighs 2.9 pounds -- quite a feat for a convertible with a 4K display. (Especially since we can still remember Panasonic's hulking 4K tablet from a few years ago.)

Toshiba 4K Laptop: First LookBrushed metal finishes and a thin, light frame add to the feeling that this laptop is a prosumer-grade, professional-caliber device. To make the most of that all-important 4K screen, there's Technicolor-endorsed color-calibration to ensure that your family portraits and other important pics are closer to real life in color reproduction. You can even switch between modes while using the PC -- important for anyone working in graphics. Alongside Intel's newest Core i7 processors, Toshiba tells us there's 8GB of RAM and at least 256GB of storage. You can also go for a 1080p display if you don't like nice things.

Rounding out the spec sheet, there are built-in Harman Kardon speakers, USB 3.1 and 3.0 ports and integrated Intel HD 5200 graphics. The laptop will also be available with an infrared camera combination that'll log you in with facial recognition alone, but we couldn't test that on the show floor model. If you need your 4K in two different shapes, you won't have to wait for long: it'll arrive before the end of 2015.
