I upgraded from a standard 1012 to a new 1012 HD and have not noticed any appreciable difference in battery time. That being said, I have not played any HD video and the system runs much hotter than the standard system, therefore I must assume it's using more power. Plus I'm assuming that the HD display must consume a little more power.

Sorry that doesn't help much.
