Toshiba's new Kira: an ultra-premium ultrabook
Dan Ackerman, and we are taking a hands on look at the Kirabook from Toshiba, part of Toshiba's new high-end Kira line.
This is a 13-inch laptop.
It looks a little bit like a cross between a Retina MacBook Pro and maybe a MacBook Air and it actually has a very Retina-like feature.
That's a 2560 x 1440 display.
That's something you're not gonna find on any laptop outside of, let's say, the Google Pixel or the Retina MacBook Pro.
And of course, you're gonna
pay a Retina-like price for it.
This thing starts at $15.99 and that's without a touch screen.
Add another hundred box for a touch screen, and you go all the way up to $1999 if you want to trade up to a faster processor.
Are people willing to pay that much of a premium for a laptop that doesn't really maybe look like a $2000 laptop?
I guess we'll find out when this comes out in May.
I'm Dan Ackerman and that is the Toshiba Kirabook.
