You are right, its only with the Ultrabooks where the TDP is lower.
Intel claims Haswell will offer 50 percent more battery life in laptops
"And in idle or standby mode the chips will do even better, extending battery life by up to 20 times"
" It can dynamically adjust the power consumption in various parts of the chip to reduce the overall power draw."
"they’ll also offer double the graphics performance for laptops"
"Faster interconnects on the chip also shave off some power use, according to Intel, because data is transferred more quickly, which means the processor cores can spend less time working."
So perhaps Haswell is worth waiting for ....

This is how Haswell piches power:
Worth the wait for the W540?
