Toshiba Gulf FZE launches today the KIRA, a 13.3-inch touchscreen Ultrabook that combines elegant design, meticulous craftsmanship and unparalleled performance. Designed for users who demand a premium computing experience, the ultra-portable KIRATM is now available in the market. 

Exceptional Performance

Powered by the 4th Generation Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor and running on Windows 8.1 Pro, the KIRA with its 8GB of memory delivers speed on demand and consistent performance. It has 256GB of SSD storage and an SD card port that allows for extra space whenever required. 

“The KIRA exemplifies innovation,” shares Santosh Varghese, General Manager of Digital Products and Services, Toshiba Gulf FZE. “As a tribute to Toshiba’s history of leading innovation, the KIRA is refined in performance as well as in design. It was built for demanding tasks and for the most discerning users,” he adds. 

Ideal for travelling, the KIRA lasts up to nine hours on just a single charge. Additionally, one of its three USB 3.0 ports is equipped with Sleep and Charge functionality, allowing users to charge their mobile devices even when the Ultrabook is turned off. 

Supreme Clarity

Having 90% more pixels than the standard HD, the KIRA contains as many as 221 pixels per inch with its 2560x1440 ultra-fine pixel display. Users can enjoy razor sharp text and true-to-life images at all times. 

The stunning screen is combined with the complimentary Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11 for a comprehensive image editing functionality. Furthermore, the KIRA’s Intel HD 4400 graphics complements the screen for a realistic movie viewing experience. It also comes with an HDMI port, so users can enjoy viewing images and watching films on a big screen or a home theatre. 

The 10-point multi-touch display features Corning Concore glass for durability and fingerprint resistance, providing users with seamless navigation and unspoiled viewing clarity. 

Precision Sound

For an unmatched entertainment experience, the KIRATM’s premium Harman Kardon speakers deliver hyperrealistic sound, while the built-in DTS Studio SoundTM produces high-fidelity audio for video calls, movies and music. 

Pure Elegance

Weighing only 1.35kg, the KIRA is merely 9.5mm at its thinnest point, creating a sleek look that makes it as stylish as it is portable. Made with AZ91 pressed magnesium alloy for unmatched durability, the KIRATM has a brushed metal finish for complete elegance. 

Reinforced with the Toshiba honeycomb structure, the KIRATM protects itself from extreme pressure. A stabilising hinge minimises bounce back, making it easy to open and close. Thin, light and elegant, the KIRATM is engineered for premium performance.
