Usually, you’d think that more than seven or eight hours with your Windows 8 laptop is something truly extraordinary but what about 22 hours? Toshiba’s new Ultrabook Kira laptop with Windows 8.1 promises to deliver an amazing battery life, but for a price

There might be some battery drain problems caused for some users by the Windows 8.1 update, but not when it comes out of the box. Toshiba’s new Ultrabook Kira laptop promises to deliver an impressive battery life of 22 hours, but you’ll have to lay down around $1,500 to get it. At the moment, though, it is available only for Japanese customers.

Toshiba’s latest flagship Ultrabook takes Intel’s new Haswell chips to a whole new meaning battery-wise. There are actually two versions of this Ultrabook, with a touch version that also comes with improved specs and a endurance-specialized one. The similarly-sized Dynabook Kira V834 comes with “only” 14 hours of battery life. Here are the most important features and tech specs of the Dynabook KIRA V654:

  • 13-inch 1,366 x 768 resolution screen, 2,560 x 1,440 for the more expensive model
  • 1.12kg (2.6 lb)
  • RAM – 8 GB
  • CPU – i5
  • 128GB SSD
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and HDMI video out, including support for 4K output, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac

The two Ultrabook devices will launch in Japan on 20th November, the touch-capable V834 starting at 153,000 yen ($1,530) and the endurance-specialized V634 will start at 144,000 yen (around $1,446). Too sad that we can’t include this among the best Windows 8 tablets to get this holiday, as the touch model is not detachable.
