My new best friend, Kira.

My new best friend is Kira… no, Kira isn’t a person. Kira is my new ultrabook and I must say I am totally in love with it.

The Toshiba Kira ultrabook is so light I can take it anywhere. At my desk connected to the monitor, in the lounge while watching tv, in the kitchen for cooking, in the bedroom to do some Pinteresting before I go to sleep, out to see clients or work in my local café while I enjoy some well-earned time out of my office to enjoy a decent coffee. Coffee and free wifi, who could ask more?



It is such a versatile and useful ultrabook, I really would be lost without my Kira now.

Kira also travels really well and doesn’t take up much room on a plane’s seat tray/ table. I get extremely bore on flights, so it is great to be able to get work done while in the air.

Kira even fits into my handbag and is so light, it doesn’t feel like my handbag is weighed down like my old laptop (it was so heavy!!).

I must say, using the keyboard on the Kira is a lot different to using a keyboard and mouse. The keys are so light, it feels like you are typing on air. No noise either! The touch pad mouse is very responsive too.


I am amazed how quickly the Kira takes to load Windows, bring up programs, download/ send emails… well do anything really.


Even though the Kira ultrabook is thin and light, unlike a lot of other notebooks on the market, Kira packs a lot of punch with an Intel Core i7 processor. It also has 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM, and a 256GB Toshiba solid state drive (SSD). In other words, Kira is an incredibly fast and intelligent notebook!

This little ultrabook can probably run faster than a lot of CPU’s on the market but with the portability of a thin notebook. The technology in the Kira is really mind blowing and I’m learning more and more about its capabilities every day.

Would I recommend it? Most definitely! It is the best notebook I have owned (I have had 3 and 3 PC’s).
