Some countries get to have all the fun, with tech that we might never see this side of the world. Toshiba will be launching a new ultrabook in Japan tomorrow that will feature an estimated battery life of 22 hours on a single charge. The device, the Dynabook KIRA V654, will have a non-touchscreen 13-inch 1,366 x 768 display and it’ll be a lightweight as well, weighing just 1.12kg.
There’s another variant with a touchscreen 2,560 x 1,440 display called the V834 on the way as well, which is supposed to have a reduced battery life of 14 hours per charge – and even that’s not a bad thing.
As mentioned, the two Toshiba ultrabooks are Japan only for the moment and will cost the equivalent of R15,500 for the touchscreen V834 and R14,650 for the V654 when they become available in that country tomorrow.
