When it comes to slim notebooks as well as Ultrabooks, there are quite a number of candidates to choose from, so to speak, although Toshiba did not really manage to spend plenty of time on the radars of ordinary folk, perhaps due to the marketing efforts of other companies such as Samsung, Apple and Dell.

The Toshiba KIRAbook holds the distinction of being the company’s first Ultrabook that has an ultra-high resolution PixelPure display, in addition to coming in a striking new lightweight and compact design that has been precision engineered with AZ91 pressed magnesium alloy.
