To chime in, I've got a
On power saver, Wi-Fi on, screen brightness 75%+ and low keyboard brightness with normal word processing and browsing the net I've recently been managing to get somewhere around 4.5 - 5hrs but never really more than that. Using it on Balanced normally will only get me 3-4.5hrs.
To keep track of your battery life, I let Windows generate a battery report? It shows you how fast the battery drains and the predicted longevity, it might be useful to you. To get the report:
Open a command prompt and type: "powercfg /batteryreport" and you should get a "battery-report.html" saved to your user folder. Hope it's useful.
