Toshiba Kira goes for the top end of computer town - http://techstyles.com.au/toshiba...
I like it when companies put a little more care into the design and build of products. Toshiba's Kira (a Japanese word meaning 'shining light') ultrabook computer is one such device, and at this morning's 2013 launch of consumer computers it was star of the show. The first thing you notice about the Toshiba Kira is that it is very thin, and very light. The case is made from magnesium alloy, with a chassis employing ac honeycomb structure for both strength and weight reduction. Open it up and switch it on, and you'll see  the 13.3-inch "ultra-high resolution PixelPure dis... Read more..

The Sonos system already had an excellent and easy-to-setup music system for the home, now it is adding your TV into the sound mix with the new Sonos Playbar. Commonly referred to as a soundbar, it's new for Sonos, but it is not a new product area, but one that has been around since about 2005.
