Toshiba Announces the Latest Kirabook with 22 Hours of Battery Life

Typically, when you think of laptops with extra-long battery life, its the MacBooks which come to mind first and not their more-common Windows rivals but that is about to change now with the Toshiba Kirabook.

The ultrabook, with a little help from Intel Haswell processors, has a 22 hour long battery life, that too in a razer-thin design.

Upfront, you get a 13.3 inch non-touch enabled display with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, one of the factors in improving battery life but you may also find a 2560 x 1440 res. model.

Under the hood, you get a 4th-generation Intel Core i5 Haswell processor, 8 GB worth storage and a 128 GB SSD. It also comes with Windows 8.1 pre-installed.

With a battery life like this, you might’ve expected the Kirabook to be an ultrabook just by name but that is not the case. The laptop weighs just 1.12kg.

Prices start at $1446 for the V634 model with 22 hour battery life, while the V834 which will come with a touchscreen display but much less attractive 14 hour battery life can be bought for $1530.

This is a lot of money but then again, Windows 8 laptop with a 10 hour battery life is rare nowadays, let alone be a 22 hour one.

    Will there be any warranty provided for the battery just like for those Hybrid cars? Because the main factor if someone has to throw 1500 Dollars would be only for battery. I hope it doesn’t lose it’s capacity over the time.
