Product information

Kira. Toshiba's luxury Ultrabook combines aesthetics and capability to craft a magnificent portable computer that's beautiful to look at and a pleasure to use. Measuring under 20mm in height and weighing just 1.35kg, Kira features a stunning PixelPure WQHD touch screen, Adobe editing software, an Intel Core i7 processor and a 256GB solid state drive. Kira is well equipped for your computing needs without sacrificing portability.

Impressive power
Packing a fourth generation Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM, the Kira is stacked to take on difficult computing tasks. Intel's Core i7 can boost it's performance to take on more intensive tasks without suffering a drop in speed, while the large amount of RAM will make multitasking a breeze. Fourth generation processors from Intel use less power, saving your battery life and also improve security and graphical capabilities over previous generations. The addition of a 256GB solid state drive will ensure programs and documents load in seconds, and your Kira will turn on in rapid time.

Refined and robust
Sleek and lightweight, Kira has been carefully crafted to be portable without sacrificing core computing capability. It measures between 19.8mm and 9.5mm at its thinnest point and weighs in at a feather light 1.35kg, while a battery life of up to 9 hours will let you work away from power points for longer. Despite its elegance, Kira is incredibly strong. Made from pressed magnesium alloy with a honeycomb reinforcement around areas where the most pressure will be applied, it proves to be a reassuringly well-built machine.

PixelPure Display
Toshiba's PixelPure touch screen display features a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, or WQHD. With 221 pixels per inch, the Kira has 90% more pixels than HD and expertly calibrated colours, enabling it to display outstandingly clear, vibrant images, whether you're watch a movie, playing a game or taking in your own library of photos. Fingerprint-resistant Corning Concore glass will help you avoid blemishes or damage that can tarnish your view.

Sound Alive with Harmon Kardon and DTS
Expertly tuned Harmon Kardon speakers give Kira a magnificent platform to deliver immersive sound. The custom speakers are paired with DTS Studio Sound technology to create an astonishing audio experience with deep, rich bass and crystal clear dialogue, bringing music, movies and and other audio to life.

The best in connectivity
Built-in a/g/n/ac Wi-Fi is just one example of the impressive connectivity technology found in Kira. When paired with an ac-compatible router, you'll be able to enjoy ultrafast wireless network connectivity. Three USB 3.0 ports with sleep and charge technology will enable fast transfer of data with USB 3.0 devices or let you charge devices like smartphones or tablets, even when Kira is turned off. An HD webcam and dual mics will help you communicate with friends and family across the globe through video chat programs with fantastic clarity.

Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity will help you wirelessly transfer files with other Bluetooth devices at high speeds and stream music and videos to other wireless devices. Finally, with an HDMI port and Intel WiDi technology, you can connect your Kira to a compatible high definition television, monitor or projector to show off your content on the big screen.

Q & As

Toshiba Kira-102 Ultrabook, Intel Core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 13.3" Touch Screen 3 5 2 2
Solid, reliable and well built, with a few niggles. Have had my Kira for several months, must disagree with the previous reviewer. I'm not an Apple user, can't comment, I have compared it to ultraportables such as Surface Pro 3; build quality is and feels excellent, solid yet fairly light, all-metal aside from keys/screen. Been on the road a fair bit and looking good as new, no scratches incl. screen - a tough case is essential and at this price I do look out for it! Keyboard great, nice backlighting, admittedly I'm tied to my trusty wireless mouse where possible however the touchsreen comes in useful, particularly (surprisingly) for graphics editing (third-party stylus, wish it had one included!). Hinge has remained nice and firm. Battery life of 9 hours is fair with some degree of power-saving. Would add, screen brightness was the concern I had before buying, recommend you find one on display first. I like a bright screen, this is bright, just. I prefer to sacrifice some battery life and keep brightness near maximum. It does charge quickly, tiny charger. Screen is beautiful with accurate colours, a joy after my old low-res laptop. No major issues although icons on some old software are tiny! A general Windows issue - with Toshiba's scaling utilities they're just useable. Speakers are great however not really good enough for listening to music. Also Toshiba software updates do not 'appear' automatically, unless I'm missing something, I have Toshiba utilities enabled. A number of times I've stumbled onto the support site to discover updates waiting! I also wish it were a little lighter - not bad but this is one area where the Surface has the edge. But the Surface keyboards put me off, I just wanted a unit that is really stable and useable on any surface (lap). Finally, at default settings the trackpad has a mind of its own! Horrible. With patience it can be nicely tamed! Overall, very happy; did deliberate a lot over the Surface 3 and Yoga Pro 3. As yet, no regrets! 30 November 2014
Poor, plasticky product; poor support. Purchased this following good reviews, only to be very disappointed by the build of it. It is near impossible to find one in a John Lewis store, but one assumes from the price premium build, which is sorely absent. Apple it is not. Despite using a Crumpler case, my Kira showed signs of damage after one business trip and a few days of careful use, with flaking and damage to the case. After 3 weeks of being bounced around John Lewis customer services, despite the price, I am now told this is simply my fault, and John Lewis will not even help with getting it repaired. Less than two weeks old, and only a few days use, it is clear that John Lewis do not offer support for online purchases. Do not buy online. 19 November 2014
