If profile doesn't matter, I would check for an antivirus or similar background process that keeps hard drive and CPU busy at all times.

 

My experience is that it should be around 3 hours with default profile. Unless you're playing games of course :-)

The amount of time a battery will last is highly dependent on the usage of the machine and the power profile which is in use. However, you may want to check this link and see if it helps with your situation.
