Last week we caught a glimpse of a Toshiba Hybrid tablet, and it looks as though Toshiba has yet another device it has secretly been working on for the past couple of months.

Toshiba announced its 13-inch KIRAbook ultrabook today as the first ultrabook in a a new series of notebook computers and promises a lightweight, compact design due to its magnesium alloy chassis. The KIRAbook weighs a total of 2.6lbs and features a 13-inch PixelPure display that is capable of producing a 2560 x 1440 resolution with a 221 PPI. A standard and touchscreen version of the KIRAbook will be made available with the touchscreen version supporting 10-points of touch as well as Windows 8 gestures support.

The Toshiba KIRAbook also has some impressive internal specs as it comes with a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM and a range of third-generation Intel Core processors. You’ll be able to pre-order the KIRAbook starting May 3 and being available for sale on May 12 online starting at $1,599. So if you’re looking for an ultrabook that has a high-resolution screen like the Google Chromebook Pixel and MacBook Pro with Retina, this may very well be what you’ve been waiting for.
