A great performance Ultrabook

POSTED BY: Business user , Phoenix, AZ
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 5 out of 5

I use this ultra book for travel and running business applications (Office 365). Am impressed with the fast startup and very little heat generated during use. I compared the Kirabook to other similar models, some with higher resolution, and found the total package hard to beat. An added bonus is the dedicated 2 year service package, much like Applecare.

The Kira is lightning fast and beautiful, and if you really like Windows 8, you'll probably love it. However, used as a half-time desktop replacement, it is crash-prone and has trouble adjusting consistently to resolution changes when connected to an external monitor. Considering I've installed next to nothing on it, my inclination is to blame Windows only a little more than Toshiba. I think the device could be better tested under these conditions.
