Interesting. My rMBP is getting 7.5 hours of battery life under Mountain Lion, so I can't complain.

I'm getting around 4-5 hours with general use on my 11" MBA 2012, pretty happy with that.

That's been the case with mine as well (except I upgraded). My Retina MacBook Pro lasts longer than Apple advertises under ML.
