"Even some casual gaming was possible [...] Still, this is not a gamer's device."
How does this thing get such amazing battery life? The MSI GT60, for example, has very similar hardware and battery capacity, yet gets half the battery life.
The reason for the good battery life is that it's using the Intel HD 4000. Like Nvidia's Optimus, AMD has switchable graphics cards and the 8870 is not in use to get the battery life's recorded in this review. Even then, the battery life is spectacular above pretty much every other laptop, getting around 11 hours non Wifi use and around 6 hours of streaming a HD movie. This can be credited to the 91Whr battery in the Chronos, comparable to the 95Whr one in the 15" rMBP. Adding a SSD in also increases the battery life by an hour or so.
