Toshiba Unveils KIRA Series Of Luxurious Products


Toshiba today introduced KIRA, a new brand for consumers. The first device to launch under the brand is KIRAbook, a 13.3-inch Ultrabook featuring the company's ultra-high resolution PixelPure display and a lightweight design.

KIRAbook has an industrial design, premium build materials and is backed by a two-year warranty, plus complimentary Platinum service and support. The Ultrabook will make its debut in the U.S. market in early May.

"At the core of the KIRA brand are products derived from inspired engineering," said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. "Products that will carry the KIRA name will be more than a collection of the latest hardware technologies, but a statement of craftsmanship, fit and finish, and features built for the consumer's benefit, not technology's sake."

KIRAbook is the first laptop from Toshiba to feature the ultra-high resolution, factory color-calibrated PixelPure display. With a native resolution of 2560 x 1440, KIRAbook delivers 221 pixels per inch to the device's 13.3-inch diagonal display - a 90-percent increase over standard HD displays. Offered in both standard and touchscreen display configurations, KIRAbook's touchscreen models utilize Corning Concore Glass, which offers damage resistance and a 10-point multi-touch surface to navigate the Windows 8 experience. KIRAbook also includes Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11 software.

KIRAbook'is also equipped with high-quality stereo speakers by Harman Kardon, and audio processing by DTS.

KIRAbook is the only Ultrabook of its kind to be constructed with AZ91 pressed magnesium alloy and a honeycomb-base. One hundred percent stronger than aluminum alloy, the use of AZ91 enables KIRAbook to maintain lightness. Honeycomb reinforcement is applied to key pressure point areas of the device such as the palm rest area to achieve a higher grade of durability.

On the inside, KIRAbook features Toshiba's AirFlow II technology, a thin multi-phase fan cooling system, as well as a stabilizing hinge that increases the resilience of the lid when opening and closing the laptop and reduces screen bounce for touchscreen use. A high-capacity Li-Polymer battery is incorporated to let users work unplugged throughout the day with a long battery life rating, while a 256GB Solid State Drive and 8GB of 1600 MHz memory produce a fast experience. KIRAbook is powered by 3rd generation Intel Core processors.

The device has a starting weight of a scant 2.6-pounds and stands at an ultra-slim 0.7 inches. The design also includes a frameless LED backlit keyboard.

KIRAbook also features a complimentary two-year subscription to a custom suite of security products from Symantec, including Norton Internet Security, Norton Anti-Theft and Norton Online Backup, providing 25GB of online storage.

The KIRAbook will be available for pre-order on May 3, 2013 and for purchase on May 12 at Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Microsoft Store, B&H and Adorama, and direct from Toshiba at ToshibaDirect.com.

Three configurations will be available ranging from $1,599.99 MSRP to $1,999.99 MSRP, featuring Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors.
