Toshiba unveils new touchscreen ultrabook
Dubai, April 24, 2014
Toshiba Gulf has launched its new 13.3-inch touchscreen Ultrabook at the ongoing Gitex, a leading consumer electronics show in Dubai.
Powered by the 4th Generation Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor and running on Windows 8.1 Pro, the KIRATM with its 8GB of memory delivers speed on demand and consistent performance, a statement said.
It has 256GB of SSD storage and an SD card port that allows for extra space whenever required.
“Gitex 2014 is the most opportune time to launch the KIRATM, a masterpiece that exemplifies innovation,” said Santosh Varghese, general manager of Digital Products and Services, Toshiba Gulf. “As a tribute to Toshiba’s history of leading innovation, the KIRATM is refined in performance as well as in design. It was built for demanding tasks and for the most discerning users.”
Ideal for travelling, the KIRATM 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.
Having 90 per cent more pixels than the standard HD, the KIRATM 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 screen is combined with the complimentary Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11 for a comprehensive image editing functionality. Furthermore, the KIRATM’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.
The KIRATM’s premium Harman Kardon speakers deliver hyperrealistic sound, while the built-in DTS Studio Sound produces high-fidelity audio for video calls, movies and music.
Weighing only 1.35kg, the KIRATM 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 elegance, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
