ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT

POSTED BY: , Lindon, UT
For Model: KIRAbook™ 13-i5s-Touch Ultrabook™
Overall rating: 5.0 out of 5

I needed something that would work for my hectic and on the run schedule. It has a hefty tag but it also has all of the bells and whistles that I wanted and needed. My required list: Weight and the lack thereof. Lit keyboard that doesn't blind me from an angle. Keys that allow me to flow from one to another with ease. Touchscreen is a must have with Windows 8. My patience and time are both limited so I am pleasantly surprised with the KIRA and how it powers up and operates with speed and ease. I would purchase another one without hesitating. Thank you Toshiba!

Best Ultrabook Ever

This ultrabook is awesome for everything, including games with the needs of minecraft. Very light and thin, lovely sound, super portable, decent battery, good looking design, brilliant display and great keyboard. Definitely best ultrabook Toshiba has ever made.

NOT the "best laptop ever!"

It's not a bad laptop. It's just not the best. I have had to reboot it too many times in order for it to connect to the internet. Even with my 7-year-old Mac #which is what I'm used to working with# I didn't have as much trouble. Otherwise, it's useful.

Light and portable

The KIRA is great. Fast, efficient and very light. The only real negative is the laptop cover. when using touch screen it tends to bend making it feel flimsy. Not so good for the handwriting recognition program.

Depends on how you use it...

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.

Cool laptop

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.

A great performance Ultrabook

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
