Toshiba Dynabook Kira May Offer Impressive Battery Life

Intel Haswell architecture is a game-changer in laptop industry, because it allows manufacturers like Apple, Acer, Lenovo and Asus to extend battery life while keeping an impressive battery level. But With the Dynabook Kira, Toshiba has set a new standard for what a Haswell-powered laptop could be.

It comes with 22 hours of battery life on a single charge. A typical ultrabook offers about 12 hours of battery life and travelers would be pleased to know that they can get a laptop that’s just a couple of hours short of a entire day.

Of course, laptop manufacturers often have a tendency to be a little bit too generous about their claims and their products may fall short in real-world tests.

The Dynabook Kira V634/27K comes with a 13.3-inch (1366 x 768) display, which is not a true high-definition panel. A more expensive model with 2560 x 1440 display offers better graphics quality, but the high resolution panel takes a toll on the battery life. Users can only get 14 hours of battery life; which is still quite impressive by any standard. Toshiba Dynabook Kira is more expensive than the latest MacBook Pro Retina model, at about £900.
