Toshiba has recently unveiled its latest ultrabook called the KIRAbook, a Windows 8 machine that sports a 13.3-inch 2560×1440 high-resolution display.

The Toshiba KIRAbook aims to take on Apple’s current top of the line Macs with its 13.3-inch PixelPure touchscreen display that packs a native resolution of 2560×1440 which equates to 221ppi – just a few pixels less than the MacBook Pro Retina Display’s 227ppi.

    The price is so high that you’ll start to think that Macbooks are cheap; and comes with good apps too

  4. sorry, but can’t they think of other design/aesthetics aside from a macbook-esque design? sad.

    • cause anything out of macbook-esque design doesn’t look good.

  5. Well children, you are looking at the Acura of notebooks. Acura supersports car is better than any one out there, but sorry Filipinos are so ignorant about it, that all they know is the ford fiesta painted with so and so like a sarao jeepney which is nothing but the overpriced lousy hardware nothing but shit apple. And that includes the apple tablet and phones.
    In case you did’nt get what I mean, it goes only into saying only that apple is only found to be owned by PROSTITUTES,UNEMPLOYED, or BEGGARS.

  6. Kira! Pang meyaman! Bwahahahaha
