Toshiba outs new Kira Ultrabook and wallet-friendly Chromebook

Toshiba has announced two laptops at opposite ends of the tech spectrum at CES.

First up we have the Toshiba Kira – a high-end slim Ultrabook which packs in a pixel-packed 13.3in 2560x1440 touchscreen display covered in Corning's scratch and shatter resistant Concore glass.

Despite its svelte magnesium alloy profile, it manages to pack in a fourth generation Intel i7 Haswell processor, and although hardcore gaming is off the cards due to the lack of a dedicated graphics card, Intel's integrated HD4400 graphics can churn out 4K movies without a problem.

Three USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI out and SD card reader make up the connections while Harman Kardon speakers should provide some beefy sounds.

A 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM, coupled with a nine hour battery life and a 1.35kg weight round off the spec sheet.

It'll be available in February for around £1300 (RM7010).
