Toshiba Kirabook Will Be The First Windows Laptops With Retina Display-Like Capability

For quite some time, Window PC users want laptops that can match Apple’s vaunted Retina Display MacBooks. The upcoming Toshiba Kirabook will be a pioneer in this category with its 13” (2560 x 1600) display resulting to 227 ppi of pixel density. Instead of the standard 16:10 aspect ratio, the display goes with 16:9, necessitates the removal of some vertical pixels.

The 10-point multitouch capability allows more complex implementations with the display. So far, Windows laptops never exceed 200ppi and the closest competition Apple has is the Chromebook Pixel at 239ppi.

It shouldn’t be too long before we see other companies follow with their own take on Apple’s Retina Display MacBooks.  Measuring 0.7 inches thick and weighing 2.6 pounds, the Kirabook will be a premium notebook with its magnesium alloy chassis.  The middle-range version is equipped with Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD with a starting price of $1,800.(Approx. £1158) A basic version is priced is priced at $1,600 (Approx. £1030) probably with a Core i3 processor, which is not yet confirmed. The top model uses Intel Core i7 3537U processor, which sets user back $2,000 (Approx. £1287).
