I was wondering if someone could recommend me a user-friendly Linux distro that would get good battery life on an X220. The reason I ask is I have the extended 11 hour (supposedly) battery that I purchased with the laptop and yet I'm only getting about 4 hours out of it on Linux Mint, yet on Windows with the same brightness and usage I would get about 7-8 hours. Did Lenovo's engineers do some black magic with their Windows drivers? I really don't care if I have to wipe and install another distro, battery life is more important, however I would rather stay away from Windows (have enough of those machines already).
