    I have the base model and the last time i checked, it lasted around maybe a bit over 5 hours from regular browsing with screen brightness a bit below half.

    Still better than the 45minutes from my old laptop but I thought I'd get closer to 7 hours.

    Depends on what else you have running. Are your keyboard backlights on? Streaming a lot of WiFi? I get about 6 or so. But heavy use obviously drains it faster.

    Light work or browsing with screen below half, I get about 9 to 9 1/2 hours. When I ramp up my tasks it goes down obviously. I have the base model.
