I bought an Asus UL30Vt about two years ago. It claims 12 hours of battery life. I replaced hard drive with an SSD and, working with wifi on, I still get about 11 actual real hours of work with it. I mostly take it to meetings, so I bring it to work on Monday and bring it home Friday. I don't even keep a charger at work. I don't understand why its battery life is so good, or why no one else seems to have heard of it, but it's a bloody amazing laptop. The hardware is almost three years old, but the specs are still decent: 1.3 GHz Core2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 3.7 pounds, and both an Intel AND Nvidia graphics card. It really makes you wonder though - why is the battery so mysteriously good on this laptop, and so terrible on the rest? I mean, the UX31 is clearly the UL30Vt's replacement, but the old version still gets almost twice the battery life of the UX31 here.
