kirabook 1Japanese firm Toshiba has dived headlong into the luxury and high-end notebook market with their latest release, known as the KIRAbook, which we talked about yesterday, but have managed to snag a bagful of photos today, which you can check out its photo gallery right after the jump. KIRA is part of Toshiba’s exercise in introducing a new premium brand for consumers, where the KIRAbook would be an all-new Ultrabook that will offer the first and vaunted ultra-high resolution PixelPure display, helping achieve a lightweight yet compact design that was precision engineered with AZ91 pressed magnesium alloy.

Just what other kinds of hardware can you expect the Toshiba KIRAbook to carry? Let us refresh our memories together from yesterday’s news. Other than holding the honor of carrying the first laptop from Toshiba that sports an ultra-high resolution, factory color-calibrated PixelPure display, it has a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 at 221 pixels per inch, Corning Concore Glass, a 10-point multi-touch surface, not to mention Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11 software to keep it company.

Your ears too, will tingle, when you hear of the KIRAbook’s sound system that are delivered via Harman Kardon speakers, which will further be enhanced courtesy of audio processing by DTS. Underneath the hood would see a thin multi-phase fan cooling system accompanied by a high-capacity Li-Polymer battery, a 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, and a 3rd generation Intel Core processor. Toshiba is asking $1,599.99 to $1,999.99 for the KIRAbook as it goes for pre-order from this May 3rd onwards, where you can then purchase it from May 12th. [Product Page]
