Reviews for the Toshiba KIRA-10D
Featherweight. The updated version of the Toshiba KIRA weighs 200 grams less without the touchscreen and is therefore one of the lightest 13.3-inch devices on the market. The new Broadwell hardware ensures sufficient performance and long battery runtimes, but is the high price justified?

The Toshiba Kira-10D is a well-balanced premium ultraportable, carrying off a great display, good magnesium build quality and a fast Core i7 processor. It’s thin, very light to suit anyone needing a more satisfactory Windows ultraportable.

Given the price range of the notebook, it holds several advantages over its competitors. Firstly, the notebook has excellent build quality, durability and it’s lightweight (1.1 kg). The design from subjective perspective is minimalistic, strict and appealing, but some of you might find it boring. However, the most notable feature of the model is the honeycomb-shaped inner chassis that makes it sturdier and it really does the trick. Secondly, the interior is mostly flawless – good keyboard (maybe a little stiff keys, but nothing too worrying) with big enough keys and the “F” buttons are here too, the touchpad is responsive and easy to use, and the surface is pleasant to touch giving enough comfort without getting affected by higher temperatures during long hours of work.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
