    So we've seen a bunch of Haswell laptops with impressive battery life including the recently released Dell XPS 15 with IGZO+Haswell with an impressive 12 hour battery life based on reviews. So how much battery life do you think Apple will put in their newest offering?

    Will Apple outdo the current industry offerings? Or will we see average and "incremental" gains?

    Who knows. Many of us are only expecting 9-10 hours. And for the 15-inch in particular, a lot of this hinges on if there will be a dGPU or not.

    Apple blew away our battery expectations with MBA. So I'm leaving room to be surprised. But if all we get is 9-10 hours, I'm cool with that.

    The problem is I doubt they will offer IGZO in the newest rmbp, no matter what the leaks have said since its not even in the iPhone iirc. Also the XPS 15 has 4400intelHD I believe, while the rmbp would have Iris. With these assumptions I think they will aim for the magically 10hours, but users can expect more.

    I have seen 16hours from the Airs when my friend used it just for the internet.

    I find it surprising how conservative these estimates are... its as if consumers are less confident that Apple can pull a machine with better battery life than a Dell XPS? lol... that IGZO display better make it into the retina when Haswell goes into it.
