I purchased a Lenovo Y700 almost 1.5 years ago (Lenovo ideapad Y70015ISK and Product Number: 80NV).
I have never played a game on this, mostly net browsing, working with office products, watching youtube vids, and this sort of light tasks.
The battery has been lasting for almost 4 hours until recently. By the way, I did not keep the the laptop connected to the outlet for all the time. When it was fully charged, I would unplug it. At least, i did it for 80% of the time.
A few days ago, I noticed that the battery is not holding charge as before. I realized that now it only last for around (less than) 2 hours.
It is really surprising for me, as It di not start to decline slowly and gradually. It suddenly went from 4 hours to 2 hours.
What is happening with my battery?
The Lenovo Vantage shows the battery is in "Good" condition.
Is it dying? Is less than 2 years a normal life time of such batteries?

download this small monitoring software and check how much capacity your battery still holds today after 1.5 years
