At a Glance

The Kirabook looks the part of a luxury laptop, and it’s the first Ultrabook to compete with Apple’s Retina lineup. But Toshiba made some disappointing decisions on the way to a $2000 price tag.

Price when rated: $2000
Lowest price: $1,500.00 via Amazon.com Marketplace

Pros

  • Very high-resolution touchscreen
  • Thin, light, and extremely quiet
  • Rigid lower chassis

Cons

  • No DisplayPort
  • Flimsy lid
  • Disappointing contrast in the display
  • Wi-Fi adapter doesn’t support 5GHz networks
