Ah the old "wait for Haswell" commentary. Based on the latest rumors (aggregated here: ultrabook-class processors are going to move from 17W to 15W TDP, so 1 component of your computer will have about 15% less energy consumption... I would expect that's about 5% of total power draw. As far as performance, looks to be about 10% CPU improvement as well as 20-30% GPU

So to recap, 5% better battery life, and somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20% overall performance. And these are going to be full-price for a good 4-6 months before going on decent sales.
