Battery life for the Surface Pro

I fully charged my Surface Pro and decided to read a Word doc in bed. As the room is pretty dark I put it on lowest brightness.
After 10 mins I wondered what this usage would give me (by the battery indicator estimate) as a 'best case' scenario.

It is offering a remaining 7hrs 30mins.

That has exceeded my expectations, even considering it is on lowest brightness.

Mine showed this as well when I first bought it. Windows tends to take a few charge cycles to give an accurate battery life reading. It now shows around 5 hours remaining under similar circumstances to yours.

I thought that might be the case but I'll keep checking. :)

I thought more Pro owners would be doing some heavy duty testing by now. Fully charge the Pro, continuously run a movie, see how many hours you can get.

Engadget ran this test, got 3:45. As a comparison the RT hit 9:37. I believe their baseline is screen at 60% with wifi on but not connected.
