Best answer: You may get an hour extra. But it's not worth it. The images and text become really soft and lose their sharpness. There is no point getting this model if you intend to run it in 1080p and you want to maximize battery. This laptop is for power users or professionals who need the power and resolution on a daily basis. And power users normally don't mind to keep this plugged in for maximum performance. They already know they're sacrificing battery life.
Get the 1080p version if you want maximum battery, and tinker with photo or video editing once in a while. If you're truly not photo editing or video editing for a living, and not on a weekly, if not daily basis, then go with the dual core, 1080p. That will be a much better buy.,
