I got my Asus UX303UA(which won over the dell xps13 option) - i7-u6500 last week. I installed Linux Mint(MATE edition, though I use mainly i3wm). After upgrading to kernel 4.5 I get 8-9h of battery with normal use ( Vim, firefox several tabs, rails/node/redis/postgres server running...), even longer if I'm on-off the computer. I'm really happy with it so far.

Besides, I could add +4GB RAM and replace sata HDD with SSD.
