Toshiba is stepping up its ultrabook game a notch, with an all new ultra high resolution 13-incher.
It is called the Kirabook and it is a sign of things to come, as it is supposed to be the first in a line of Kira products. Weâ€™re not entirely sure about the name, but we like everything else.
The 13-incher features a 2560x1440, 221ppi display. A 10-point touchscreen with Gorilla Glass is optional. It will ship with a range of Ivy Core i5 and Core i7 chips, 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 and a 256GB SSD. It packs three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, memory card reader, Bluetooth 4.0 and a Li-Poly battery, which is supposed to deliver all-day battery life.
The rest of the spec just screams premium. It has a couple of Harman Kardon speakers with DTS audio processing, two microphones and an HD webcam. All this is packed in a 1.18kg chassis constructed from a pressed magnesium alloy and it measures just 0.7 inches at the waistline.
The first Kiras should ship in May. Thereâ€™s no word on pricing yet, but judging by the spec it will end up very pricey indeed.
