Toshiba said at CES that the new Ultrabooks will get the Haswell processor, better battery life and a lower price. The new models of the Ultrabook are rated for 9 hours of battery life and will retail for up to $120 less than previous models.
A key feature of Toshiba's Kirabooks is the high-resolution PixelPure display which has been praised by reviewers around the world for its outstanding sharpness.
The improvements for the 2014 model are incremental, with the basic feel and hardware of the Kirabook remaining essentially unchanged, but they add up to much more enticing specs for a device that hasn't been shy about naming its competition. Toshiba has pitched the laptop as a flagship Windows competitor to the Macbook Pro and Chromebook Pixel.
