Absolutely not. Maybe in the dream world which notebook manufacturers live in but 9 hours with a 3-cell, even with Haswell is impossible.

And I have a loaner Lenovo x220 at work and it's alright I guess. Have you looked at the HP Elitebook 9470m Folio SKY? It's a pretty solid device and it's getting a refresh to include a 1600x900 display.
All of the Folios I have seen lately sport Windows 8. In addition, I'm not going to spend $1400+ on a notebook with a 1366x768 display since the refresh isn't out yet.
