Toshiba Kira-101

 

Toshiba's latest ultrabook has a killer screen but comes at a price

High-quality, high-resolution screen ; Fast Core i7 processor ; Smart-looking design ; Good touchpad ; Fantastic battery life

Lack of attention to detail ; Middling integrated graphics ; Average keyboard ; Inconsistent screen scaling ; High price

The Kira boasts of Harmon/Kardon speakers, and they’re certainly loud; despite the Toshiba’s small size, it pumped out enough volume to fill a small room. Quality is mixed, with thumping bass drums accompanied by tinny, loud high-hats – they’re...

Toshiba Kira-101 review: High-res touchscreen, premium price

 

The thin, lightweight and stylish Kira-101's standout feature is its high-resolution 13.3-inch touchscreen. It delivers solid performance and good battery life, but the price is high.

High-resolution touchscreen ; Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM ; Good battery life ; Good sound output

Expensive ; Lacks legacy ports

The Toshiba Kira 101 is a thin, lightweight and stylish ultrabook that would not look out of place in a business meeting. The high-resolution 13.3-inch touchscreen is a highlight, alongside 8GB of RAM, a dual-core Core i7 processor and a 256GB SSD....

Toshiba Kira 101

 

Size and weight are excellent given the performance. Battery life is commendable. It's just like a MacBook only fast and with a good operating system and some ports!

Quite expensive, but buying refurbished was a great experience.
