Toshiba KIRAbook 13 Intel i5 with Touch-Screen

Amazon.com



KiraBook
Introducing the powerful side of luxury.



Breakthrough Display and Design
KIRAbook View 1

PIXEL PERFECTION

Experience the precision of the PixelPure™ Display, perfectly color-calibrated with stunning 2560x1440 native resolution. Utilizing 3.7* million pixels for brilliant clarity, and 90% better resolution than standard HD displays. A picture so beautiful you wont be able to take your eyes—or your hands—off of it.

HONEYCOMB REINFORCEMENT

Our designers drew inspiration from one of nature's strongest structures, the rigid and efficient reinforcement of the honeycomb. The hexagon core is an elegant solution that creates balance in design by effectively adding strength without additional weight.

TOUCHABLE

KIRAbook™ has a fingerprint-resistant touchscreen that is perfectly paired with the intuitive nature of Windows 8. Housed under Corning® Concore™ Glass, it's a touchscreen without tradeoffs.

SYMPHONIC SOUND

Be immersed in sound with the superior craftsmanship and sound quality of Harman Kardon® stereo speakers. DTS Studio Sound™ submerges you in natural tones and bass to create a rich symphonic audio experience.


Inspired Engineering
KIRAbook View 2

DURABLE BEAUTY

Introducing AZ91, the pressed magnesium alloy that makes KIRAbook light, durable and elegant. This material is over 100% stronger than the A6063 aluminum alloy used in the MacBook Air® and proves once and for all there is beauty in strength.

STABILIZING HINGE

Our design team had but one goal: create an easy-to-open hinge that was strong enough to minimize touchscreen bounce back. All so you can tap, pinch and swipe to your heart's content.

FEATHERWEIGHT DESIGN

Classic design demands the removal of what's not necessary. So we started with rounding out any hard edges, crafting the KIRAbook to fit comfortably in hand. We also redistributed and reduced the weight to start at 2.6 lbs and lowered the profile to a sleek 0.7", giving the KIRAbook an airy look and feel not found anywhere else.

BATTERY LIFE

We equipped the KIRAbook with a high-performance battery that has a long life rating.


Ready, Set, Compute.

KEYBOARD AMBIANCE

Work doesn't stop when the sun goes down, so we thoughtfully designed a frameless LED backlit keyboard to increase usability in low light situations. Making it easier to work, or play, until the sun comes up again.

COOLING EFFICIENCY

Air Flow II technology pairs a high performance fan with multi-directional ventilation design, keeping the KIRAbook running cooler for longer even if things at work are heating up.

ADOBE® AND NORTON™ COMPLIMENTARY SOFTWARE

The KIRAbook experience begins the moment you open it with a complimentary bundle of Adobe® Photoshop® Elements 11, Adobe® Premiere® Elements 11, Norton™ Internet Security, Norton™ Anti-Theft and up to 25GB of Norton™ Online Backup. You'll have everything you need to do everything you want.

  • Dedicated Toshiba Certified Master Agents

It feels incredibly sturdy but is also very light and thin.

Typing is great; there is no sag to the keyboard at all, the touch indicators on the F and J keys are well done, and the keys feel nice when touch typing.

So, let me mention few of the performance observations I made.

Verified Purchase
I have had this laptop for 2 days now.

The good is:
1) Screen is amazing.
2) Light and sturdy (no flex)
3) Great keyboard
4) Fast, even with the i5
5) Very responsive touchpad and touchscreen

The bad:
1) The wifi has no signal areas of my house where other devices (Ipad, Dell laptop, Iphone) have 3-4 bars. For example, I can watch online videos on my patio with the IPad while the Kirabook shows no connection.
Here is the response from their tech support and I quote: "This is not normal behavior for the wifi reception to behave like. I would recommend reinstalling the drivers for the wifi." I did and of course it made no difference. Hopefully this can get resolved.
2) The scaling in some programs and windows is screwed up with the high screen resolution. For example, the Adobe programs that came with the laptop have really small menus that are impossible to read for me.
Battery life is mediocre at best. I got < 4 hours out of my first 3 charges. Maybe it will improve.
3) Only HDMI port. No mini display or VGA. Need to carry adapter for all presentations.
4) Looooong charging time.

Update: I have used this laptop now for ~ 2 weeks. The battery life for normal usage is between 3.5 and 4 hours. Even with the lowest screen brightness and when just typing/Outlook 2013 I cannot get more than 4 hours. With music listening on the side, its 3 hours.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When it comes to laptops, I'm at a point in my career when I am no longer willing to compromise in terms of performance and style. That mindset costs me a little more in terms of the purchase price of a new machine, but when I consider that I usually keep a laptop a minimum of two years, then the premium I pay for a truly state-of-the-art laptop like the Toshiba KIRAbook 13 is about $1 a day more than a model with weaker specs and FAR less style. To me, that's the definition of "affordable luxury" and given how many hours of use my laptop gets, it's well worth it.

I had an opportunity to test both KIRAbook 13 touchscreen models--the i5 and the i7--before deciding which one to go with. On paper, the differences are negligible. The KIRAbook 13 i5 has a 3rd gen Intel i5 processor and the regular version of Windows 8. The KIRAbook 13 i7 has a 3rd gen Intel i7 processor and Windows 8 Pro. If you're not hung up on processor specs, or need the few incremental features of Windows 8 Pro, then save yourself $200 and go with the quite-capable i5 model.

My testing involved a number of real-world scenarios that relied on the software tools I use on a daily basis--the Microsoft Office 2013 suite, the Adobe CS6 suite (InDesign, Illustrator, Lightroom 4, and Photoshop primarily), and various other programs that are RAM and storage hogs. I also did a lot of testing of media files like streaming video, downloaded 1080p video files, super-high-resolution graphics files, and streaming radio and music. The media tests gave me a good idea of graphics throughput and the ability of the large 256Gb SSD to perform when massive amounts of data were being written to the disk. The final set of tests were benchmark tests designed to see how well the hardware performed in real life vs.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I find this ultra-portable to be excellent in overall performance, with good headset sound, adequate internal speakers, a very good display with touch capabilities, and a great keyboard, but to be a bit on the expensive side and with only average battery life.

Design:

The device is larger on the end farthest from the user, with a wedge shape that allows full sized USB and HDMI ports. The left side has the power input, two USB 3.0 ports, a charging indicator light, and the HDMI port. The right side has a single USB port, the headset port, and a slot that holds an SD card. The keyboard area has the touchpad, an illuminated power button, and a small WiFi indicator light. The front and rear have nothing at all. The bottom has dual speakers, a couple of small feet so that the dual speakers can be heard, and a cooling fan.

Setup:

The setup is very simple; Toshiba includes a small booklet, plus some cards that show how to navigate in Windows 8 with either touch or a mouse. For those with more questions, it comes with Platinum setup service that has phone assistance. The only issue I had is that the device really expects you to have WiFi to set up; this is part of Microsoft's implementation of Windows 8, where you really are expected to log in on line. That isn't a problem for home users, but for business use don't expect to be able to plug in a TCP/IP-to-USB device until after set up is complete. Toshiba highly recommends completely finishing all setup actions before installing add-ons. I used the WiFi router built into my phone.

Use:

This laptop is truly outstanding for Windows 8 computing. The touch screen is sensitive (but not too much so), and everything moves quickly and snappily.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Human nature being what it is, there must be lots of people out there like me: I resist change. Therefore, the night before I was to receive this laptop in the mail, I lay awake for a few hours worrying about how hard it would be to let go of the comfort of my old laptop. Obviously, I had already made the decision to upgrade, but I worried nonetheless. Would I like the touchscreen? Would my older eyes be able to deal with the smaller screen? Will the Norton security software (already installed) work with my internet connectivity problems at my home location? What about Windows 8? And, until I opened up the box and took a look at this beautiful piece of equipment, I continued to baulk. Obviously, from what I've already admitted and questioned, you can tell I'm not a computer wiz. I'm not afraid of computers and things electronic, but you could say I'm not totally aware of the most current electronic technology available and how to use it. So, if you are like me, keep on reading--I'll try to convince you that this is the laptop to buy. If you are looking for a review with a lot of technical commentary, you might want to save yourself some time and pass this one by.

Bottom line is this: I'm very glad I upgraded to this laptop. All of my fears have faded away. The more I use it, the more I love it, love it, love it. Can you see me hopping up and down in excitement, with a big grin on my face?

The touchscreen on this baby is so helpful and very easy to use. It is user-friendly and your common-sense responses will aid you. I can fly to the bottom of a page in a blink of an eye. I can move things around, and twist them. Immediately, I can enlarge the screen to see small type or a tiny item in a picture. The touchscreen is responsive and accurate.
