Toshiba KIRA Books Intro & Highlights

For a quick run down on how this group of computer systems differ from the traditional Toshiba product categories that we’re so used to see, check out this brief introduction and highlight summary of what you can expect to find in a KIRA ultrabook.

The new KIRA (shown above and below) is sure to turn a lot of heads at launch, the device runs from $1,799 to $2,199. Toshiba reminds readers that Kira means ‘beam of light’, and the company calls Kira the “epitome of Japanese workmanship — every element designed and crafted with beautifully considered precision”.

The official description for the device is as follows: “Taking its cues from nature, KIRA has an incredibly durable lightweight strength due to its unique Honeycomb structure, designed to reinforce the chassis. Its construction, using the same magnesium alloy found in high-performance race cars, gives KIRA the edge when it comes to life in the fast lane”.

KIRA highlights include:

+ World’s first Ultrabook™ with Pixel Pure (2560×1440) display — the equivalent of four times the clarity of standard 720p High Definition display

Toshiba Satellite U920t Convertible Ultrabook Tablet

Toshiba’s Satellite U920t is an interesting Windows 8 convertible ultrabook to have recently hit the market. It uses a sliding mechanism to switch back and forth between tablet and ultrabook modes. Two comparable alternatives are the Sony VAIO Duo and the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist. The article below, with a snippet and link provided, examines the Satellite U920t as well and notes its similarities to the Duo and Twist. Check it out.

The 12.5-inch screen makes this one of the larger convertibles, using the same 1,366 x 768 resolution favoured by the budget end of town. For most users this will be fine, but designers and photographers will probably prefer the true HD resolution offered elsewhere. The Gorilla Glass finish suggests it’ll handle a beating without getting bruised, while the 10-point multitouch display means the screen can be used as a virtual piano, one of the only applications that we can imagine needs so many points of contact. Despite the lower resolution, the IPS display here is one of the better ones we’ve seen, with excellent image quality across the board. Once again, we see a glossy finish employed and despite the anti-smudging tech provided by the Gorilla Glass, our sample was soon covered in fingerprints. If you do end up buying a touch-enabled PC, a cleaning cloth will be your first must-have accessory.
