What makes it even stranger is that OS/X is _just now_ getting low-level power saving features that Windows already has, like timer coalescing. I'm expecting a 10-15% battery life increase from OS/X Mavericks due to a slew of new power-saving features - _that Windows has been using for a while_. That said, part of the issue is probably drivers. I'd like to see battery life differences between OS/X and Windows on a hackintosh laptop to get a truer picture. Honestly, I expected more in Windows 8 (and definitely in 8.1). But you have to remember that Apple has a big head start here. They ripped out big chunks of OS/X and rewrote or replaced power-hungry features for iOS. And they've spent years pulling those features _back_ into OS/X. Microsoft is still early in that process.
Retina-esque? Not quite. A retina display is 2560 by 1600. The display you're using is 1920 by 1080. You seem to want a Mac, to be looking for something as close to a Mac as you can get but not being able to get the whole way.
