Toshiba Kirabook (2014) review


The first generation of Toshiba's Kirabook was an ambitious shot at creating a high-end product with MacBook-like buzz. That slim 13-inch magnesium-alloy laptop was even the first post-Retina PC we'd seen with a better-than-HD screen resolution -- a...

"Looks great but has fundamental known design faults - screen & Wifi"


Same issues as everyone else with the Kira Ultrabook: screen began color began cycling continuously after some use so the only way to use it is to plug into another screen or projector to be able to access. Clearly a design fault Toshiba is 100% aware...

Touch screen and resolution
