Toshiba Kirabook review

 

Does the Toshiba Kirabook justify its high price?

Luscious body ; Great screen ; Harmon Kardon speakers

Very pricey ; Loud fans ; Only 256GB storage option

Toshiba Kira review

 

Laptops these days are statements of design as much as they are capable powerhouses able to crunch through almost any task you throw at them. The Toshiba Kira is the company's bash at high-end design, delivering a slim and capable machine packed with...

Fabulous screen, lots of power potential, quality materials in construction, decent battery life

Fan noise, pricey, small size keys, no discrete graphics, falls short of design potential, lacklustre audio

The Kira's star of the show is its 2560 x 1440 widescreen display. It's quite simply ace. It not only looks great but has exceptional viewing angles and this one feature puts the Toshiba of many of its competitors. It's in and around the same ballpark...

Toshiba Kira review

 

All's well that's Haswell for Toshiba's updated Ultrabook

Attractive design ; 'Retina' display ; Port selection ; Solid chassis

Expensive ; Dim display backlight ; Windows 8 scaling ; Lid flex

The Kira looks every bit its (slightly too expensive) price tag, but a dim display fails to make the most of its high resolution, which also frustrates due to Windows 8.1's scaling issues.

This Ultrabook has brilliant screen and build quality, but performance isn't up to scratch for the price

Toshiba KIRA review

 

However, there were two notable exceptions to that rule – the 15.6-inch Satellite P50 with its eye-popping 4K display, and the 13.3-inch Kira-101, which Toshiba refers to as the 'ultimate Ultrabook'.

The Toshiba Kira cannot approach the outstanding battery life of its Apple rivals. It does manages to combine good overall speed and a high-resolution display with a truly ultraportable design. That's a difficult trick to pull off, and it makes the...

Toshiba Kirabook review

 

So, Toshiba's luxurious Kirabook is the first Windows laptop to feature a display rivaling Apple's Retina technology. The Kirabook is also thinner and much lighter than Apple's Apple MacBook Pro 13in with Retina display, and it's outfitted with a...

The audience Toshiba is pursuing with the Kirabook is the well-to-do professional who is willing to pay extra for high-end hardware and services. The Kirabook is the most beautiful Ultrabook to pass through our Test Centre, but its inability to drive a...

Toshiba KIRAbook review

 

We go hands on with Toshiba's latest premium Ultrabook

There's no shortage of high-end Ultrabooks, but Toshiba's KIRAbook stands out as one to watch for 2014. With an ultra-high resolution screen at a very competitive price, the KIRAbook could be one of Toshiba's best laptops yet. Due to launch...

A dead-ringer for a MacBook but can it match the performance?

High-resolution screen, Superb battery life

Screen scaling issues, Average keyboard, Performance not great, Expensive

Toshiba Kira ultrabook review

 

Toshiba's new Kira range is designed to bring a bit of classback to the company's sometimes rather lacklustre Ultrabookoffering. At quick glance at its slim lines and metallic casingshow that it's on the right track, but can it justify itsexceptionally...

Sleek good looks, fine screen, fast processor, Solidly built,good battery life

Expensive, noisy fan, not significantly better than rivals

The Toshiba Kira is a beautiful looking lightweight slab of anUltrabook. It also has a terrific screen and fast processor butit's price very much marks it out as an exceptional device, andit's performance only places it among the best of its...
