A Wonderful Machine.

I am an average computer user, I don’t push the limits with games or programs I just get my day to day done. I am in sales and I travel for a living and my computer comes with me. I buy a new computer every few years, my last one was a Toshiba Portege that I was very pleased with, however the power supply died after three years so based on previous ownership of a Toshiba product and wanting a new computer that would last me a few more years I chose the kirabook. I got it and I love it. Small and light notebook with good power and great sound and very quick boot ups. Even the power brick is small, not like the huge ones I am use to. I have charged it a couple of times now and the battery seems to last longer than six hours. The Kira looks stylish and the details such as backlit keyboard really make a difference, the biggest plus was the tech support that comes with it, To start I had never used windows 8, our work computers are older models of windows and I really had not put a lot of thought into it. I did watch a few of videos about getting started with windows 8.1 before it arrived and that got me familiar enough to not feel lost when I turned it on. I quickly started getting use to my new OS, I did get stuck here and there but I was able to figure it out and of course I am still a novice with it. I was installing a program off the web and I screwed up, I managed to down load some adware and malicious junk. I fell for every trick the writer had to offer, I turned things off thinking they were legit messages. First day with a new toy and I and I broke my browser. I know better than that so I just felt stupid about it. Well I managed to clear out some of it myself but I couldn’t get the nasty ones off. So my Kira comes with a 2 year tech support, I did not expect their assistance in this matter but I was looking for their advice. To my surprise they helped me clear it off, in fact since they did everything on remote, they fixed it, I really did not have to do anything. The rep was wonderful, he let me speak, explain the problems and patiently heard me out. Then without being rude or condescending took care of the problem explaining everything to me on the way. He was top notch, he made a nervous experience into a comfortable situation. I am very glad I bought this impressive machine and Toshiba has once again earned my business.

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.

I have traveled with this laptop and it was a joy to bring, WiFi connection was great, light to carry. Keyboard was comfortable with a sharp clear screen.

the kirabook is nicely designed. screen has good colores and sens. bat life is ok, not more, and the keyboard has the letters in the midle of each key thus limiting the option for using another language. overall it't a good and powerfull laptop

I've had this laptop for about a month now. It is a strong laptop with a great screen. I use it for work and pleasure, running office, R, QGIS and GIMP, reading, watching videos and listening to music online and it's performing very well. It is very light and has a good battery, so I can take it with me everywhere without worrying about weight or running out of power. One worry I do have is that its fan starts working really hard even when it doesn't perform very demanding tasks and I hope it doesn't turn into an overheating problem later on. Other than that - excellent choice.

OK laptop for an expensive price

On my 9th consecutive Toshiba laptop, wanted to go for the high end available and spent accordingly. Its an OK laptop, just not a good value for money. Competition has cheaper stuff with same specs and possibly better features. After using this laptop for some time, i feel like i dont want to get rid of my Portege!

I am really enjoying the Kira although I experienced several issue created by Window 8.1. Kira technical support was fantastic and we were able to get everything resolved.

Excellent!

Excellent product, hope Toshiba makes one like this with a 15".Screen The only issue I see is the battery, having to ship it to an expert to change battery. Other than that . Great.
