While much of the PC industry is hustling to bring lower-cost Ultrabooks to market, Toshiba is unabashedly raising the high end, complete with an all-new brand meant to ooze excellence. The first product to wear this proud badge is the 13.3-inch Kirabook. If you’re into those extras and having the highest-res screen on an Ultrabook, the Kirabook’s your ticket to living large.

Bron: Comp Reviews Engels EN→NL
Toshiba entry into the premium ultrabook market with the KIRAbook tries very hard to make a name for itself. The high resolution display, very fast storage performance and strong warranty support definitely are all welcome additions. The problem is that there are enough quirks that hold it back.

67% Review: Toshiba KIRA Ultrabook
Bron: PC Authority Engels EN→NL
Combined with how much noise the KIRA makes in operation – the whine from the Ultrabook’s fans nearly drove our designer to distraction – it becomes a hard unit to recommend. Save the money, and go with the Z360. Or ditch the constraining Ultrabook spec altogether, and go with Venom’s excellent Haswell machine.

Toshiba KIRAbook High Resolution Ultrabook
Bron: Hot Hardware Engels EN→NL
On the design side of things, the KIRAbook is a handsome machine. But, as we mentioned earlier, it suffers a bit from the bevy of other laptops that look very much like it. People may comment on this machine's size, but we doubt anyone will walk up to you and say “Oooh, you have a KIRAbook.” Of course that's likely not your primary reason for buying an ultrabook like this.

Bron: Wired Magazine Engels EN→NL
WIRED Best resolution screen available for an ultrabook, period. Lightweight yet powerful, with better-than-average battery life. Responsive touchscreen and trackpad. Handsome and sturdy, yet demure. TIRED Touchscreen could be brighter. Fan could be quieter. Ultra-flat keys not overly friendly for touch typing. Ungodly costly.

Toshiba Kirabook ultrabook
Bron: Gadgetmix Engels EN→NL
At $1600 Toshiba offers a speedy powerhouse ultrabook with two years warranty and dedicated phone support ($100 value). The touch-screen option starts at $1,800. With just a week to Intel Haswell’s launch, one needs to wonder whether waiting for an upgraded version isn’t a bright idea. Haswell chip is to double the 3D graphics performance and better the battery life.

Toshiba tries to reinvent itself with a flagship Ultrabook
Bron: Engadget Engels EN→NL
There's no question the Kirabook is Toshiba's best Ultrabook to date. But is it good enough to win over wary consumers? We're inclined to say no, at least at this price. For all the things Toshiba got right (attractive design, improved keyboard, solid specs, generous warranty) there are a few important details it overlooked.

50% Toshiba Kirabook review - first Ultrabook with 'Retina' display
Bron: Tech Advisor Engels EN→NL
The audience Toshiba is pursuing with the Kirabook is the well-to-do professional who is willing to pay extra for high-end hardware and services. The Kirabook is the most beautiful Ultrabook to pass through our Test Centre, but its inability to drive a large external monitor at native resolution, a lid that flexes like a contortionist, a Wi-Fi adapter restricted to 2.4GHz networks, and a display that doesn't deliver as much contrast as the Retina display Toshiba wants consumers to compare it to make this machine's sky-high price tag hard to swallow.

It's hard not to like the Toshiba KIRA. It has everything we want in an Ultrabook: a strong chassis and a light weight, great performance, full-sized ports, and an excellent, high-resolution screen. For the most part, it's an Ultrabook that's a pleasure to use, and we even made a lot of use of its touchscreen. We think the noise from the fan is a problem though.

The Kirabook is the most beautiful Ultrabook to pass through the PCWorld Labs, but its inability to drive a large external monitor at native resolution, a lid that flexes like a contortionist, a Wi-Fi adapter restricted to 2.4GHz networks, and a display that doesn’t deliver as much contrast as the Retina display Toshiba wants consumers to compare it to make this machine’s sky-high price tag hard to swallow.

And therein lies the problem: The Toshiba Kirabook is really good, but not the best for the money. If you have a need to spend $2,000 on a high-end ultraportable laptop, the Editors' Choice Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Retina Display) will give you a higher-than-HD resolution screen, dual-band Wi-Fi, full size HDMI, 8GB of memory, 256GB Flash Storage, and similar performance with a Core i5 processor for the same $2,000 price tag. The MacBook Pro also has more battery life and forward-looking I/O ports like Thunderbolt. The Kirabook is lighter, thinner, and comes with the two-year service and support, but those aren't quite enough to unseat the MacBook Pro as the high end ultraportable EC.

This will probably make this article seem as dated as disco before too long, but at this writing there is no Apple MacBook Air with Retina Display to go with the 13- and 15-inch Retina MacBook Pros. Toshiba launches a new luxury brand with an ultra-high-resolution ultrabook (think MacBook Air Retina). The view is alternately spiffy and squinty, but the rest of the design dazzles.

Toshiba KIRAbook Review
Bron: Ubergizmo English Engels EN→NL
If money is no option to you and you want to have the highest-resolution display possible on PC, then by all means, pick up the KIRAbook. But if you want the biggest bang for your buck and don’t “need” all of that resolution (although it’s still very nice) when you’re responding to emails, Facebooking or watching cat videos on the Internet, then there certainly are slightly cheaper options, like the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, which performs just as well as the KIRAbook and is $100 less, although you would have to purchase a Windows 8 license (and deal with Apple’s questionable Windows power management) and have to deal with a heavier laptop as the 13-inch MBP with Retina weighs in at 3.57lbs versus the KIRAbook’s 2.66 (!).

Toshiba KIRAbook Ultrabook Review
Bron: AnandTech Engels EN→NL
Without having personally tested any of the ASUS Zenbooks, which at least around the "office" (disclaimer: there is not an office) are generally regarded as among the best ultrabooks on the market, I can't really speak too greatly on how the Toshiba KIRAbook measures up competitively. I can definitely tell you how the user experience measures up to the myriad non-ASUS ultrabooks I have tested, though.

79% High-end specs, and a price to match
Bron: CNet Engels EN→NL
When Toshiba first showed us the Kirabook in person, company reps asked my colleague and I what we thought the system would cost. We gave a couple of well-reasoned guesses, but came nowhere close to the $1,599-to-$1,999 range. But there is room for premium laptops even among today's price-sensitive shoppers.

The Toshiba Kirabook is an attempt to conquer the Apple laptop. It is an upscale Ultrabook laptop that has a sleek, thin design and a Retina-like 13.3-inch touch screen display. With the Kirabook, you also get excellent battery life and a speedy solid-state drive.

The Toshiba Kirabook is in many ways a great Ultrabook. The 2560 x 1440 would be impressive on its own, yet it’s served up in a package no larger than a MacBook Air that still offers excellent performance and reasonable battery life. Toshiba’s engineers have certainly earned their keep. But even the best hardware can’t reach its potential without the right software, and that’s where this Ultrabook – through no fault of its own – stumbles.

For those who can afford it, the Kirabook has everything: a gorgeous and very-high-resolution touch-screen display, a blazing 256GB SSD, and gobs of power in a sexy, yet durable design. Better yet, this $1,999 system lasts nearly 7 hours on a charge. However, the front corners are a little sharp for our taste, and the webcam could be better.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor grafische kaart in high-end Ivy Bridge modellen. Biedt verschillende kloksnelheden voor verschillende CPU modellen (ULV tot desktop quad-core) en levert daardoor verschillende prestaties.

De meeste niet-veeleisende huidige games kunnen vloeiend draaien. Wees voorbereid op verminderde grafische weergave door lage detailinstellingen en lage resoluties. Toch verschaffen deze kaarten voldoende prestatie voor kantoor taken en video bekijken (niet voor HD videos).

13.30": Dit schermformaat wordt vooral gebruikt voor subnotebooks, ultrabooks en convertibles. Voor alle drie types is dit formaat redelijk groot. De grootste verscheidenheid aan subnotebooks wordt vertegenwoordigd in deze klasse.

Grote schermformaten laten hogere resoluties toe. Details zoals letters zijn groter. Anderzijds is het energieverbruik lager bij kleine schermdiagonalen en de toestellen zijn kleiner, lichter en goedkoper.
