Designed for users who demand a premium computing experience, the ultra-portable KIRA will be available in the market from April 2014.
Powered by the 4th Generation IntelCore i7 Quad Core processor and running on Windows 8.1 Pro, the KIRA with its 8GB of memory delivers speed on demand and consistent performance. It has 256GB of SSD storage and an SD card port that allows for extra space whenever required.

Ideal for travelling, the KIRA lasts up to nine hours on just a single charge. Additionally, one of its three USB 3.0 ports is equipped with Sleep and Charge functionality, allowing users to charge their mobile devices even when the Ultrabook is turned off.
Having 90% more pixels than the standard HD, the KIRA contains as many as 221 pixels per inch with its 2560×1440 ultra-fine pixel display. Users can enjoy razor sharp text and true-to-life images at all times.
The stunning screen is combined with the complimentary AdobePhotoshopElements 11 and PremiereElements 11 for a comprehensive image editing functionality.

For an unmatched entertainment experience, the KIRA’s premium Harman Kardonspeakers deliver hyperrealistic sound, while the built-in DTS Studio Sound produces high-fidelity audio for video calls, movies and music.
Weighing only 1.35kg, the KIRA is merely 9.5mm at its thinnest point, creating a sleek look that makes it as stylish as it is portable. Made with AZ91 pressed magnesium alloy for unmatched durability, the KIRA has a brushed metal finish for complete elegance.
Reinforced with the Toshiba honeycomb structure, the KIRA protects itself from extreme pressure. A stabilising hinge minimises bounce back, making it easy to open and close. Thin, light and elegant, the KIRA is engineered for premium performance.
