Engadget Review

The Kirabook is Toshiba's best ultraportable to date, but it's still not quite good enough -- at least not at this price.

Pros
  • Brilliant, 2,560 x 1,440 screen
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Generous warranty, software package
  • Fast boot-up
Cons
  • Exceptionally loud fan
  • Limited viewing angles
  • Expensive, touchscreen not standard
