So, I bought the laptop because many reviews and even Lenovo's website tout HUUUUGE battery life with the X260 and the 7cell battery.
So I pulled the trigger and got one.
Here's the article I used:
I have the 1920x1080 screen.
Windows 10 reports about 9 hours of possible use time.
I haven't really loaded anything special on Windows 10 yet which would even chew into the battery life.
What's going on here?
NOTE: I haven't tested actual use time to see if Windows resets or cleans up the amount of life remaining. I plan to exhaust the battery to see how long it really does go.. but wanted to get some opinions if I have maybe a problem system / battery.

Headline battery life figures will likely be at minimum screen brightness, all radios disabled, power management options turned to minimum power consumption and with essentially no processor load - in other words, all but meaningless. 9 hours is still pretty impressive with current battery technology, though I'm not an X260 owner so cannot comment if it is typical for that particular model.
