Toshiba KIRAbook (KIRA-101) Ultrabook Review

19 May 2014
  • Summary: Expensive = good? Buyers prepared to invest around 1500 Euros (~$2054) in a premium ultrabook will now find another alternative to Apple & co. in the new Toshiba Kira-101. We will reveal why it is not class best despite a speedy Core i7 processor, magnesium casing, and WQHD screen.
  • Pros: High-quality and lightweight metal casing, Good input devices, Extremely sharp IPS screen, Outstanding application performance, Low temperatures, Long battery runtimes, Affordable warranty upgrades, Speedy hardware in an elegant packaging - not only Apple manages that. Toshiba comes amazingly close to the contender from Cupertino in terms of quality impression.
  • Cons: Middling webcam, Low screen brightness, Limited 3D performance, Very pricey, A bright screen should actually be standard equipment for every ultrabook. It's aggravating that the Kirabook messes up just with this crucial issue.

  • Conclusion: 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 as the MacBook Pro with Retina display. But its the subtle details that stall the Kira; it never quite achieves on its spectacular promise.
  • Pros: Fabulous screen, lots of power potential, quality materials in construction, decent battery life
  • Cons: Fan noise, pricey, small size keys, no discrete graphics, falls short of design potential, lacklustre audio

Toshiba's KIRA offers everything we want in an Ultrabook, we just wish it wasn't so loud

Good Gear Guide.au
5 August 2013
  • Summary: The Toshiba KIRA is a lovely Ultrabook that's designed for those of you want to splurge on a finely crafted product. It would suit anyone who wants great performance and a very high resolution screen in a thin and light chassis. However, the fan in the chassis can get very loud and annoying.
  • Pros: Excellent screen, Sturdy build quality, Swift performance
  • Cons: Loud fan, No Ethernet dongle

Expert Review

10 July 2014
  • Conclusion: Ultrabook'larla birlikte ağırlıklarıyla çantaları taşınmaz kılan eski nesil dizüstü bilgisayarlar da sınıf atlayarak daha ince ve hafif forma kavuştu. Fakat elbette ultrabook'lar halen daha ince ve daha hafif bir yapı sunuyor. Yalnızca tasarım anlamında daha modernize olmayan, bunun yanında performans olarak da tatmin edici durumda olan ultrabook'lara yeni bir seçenek de Toshiba 'dan geldi.
