The battery life on this laptop is incredibly poor, and nowhere near good enough for real use on the go. You can dial the screen down to the darkest setting, turn off wi-fi and not use processor-intensive applications to get longer life, but then why did you buy an ultrabook if you didn't want to see what you were doing or connect to the outside world?
