i5 processors don't have hyper-threading. The reason you're seeing that in BIOS is because it's the same BIOS used in similar models, and the manufacturer makes laptops with i7 processors, so they just left it there. You don't need to worry about it. The best way to get good battery life is to keep the speakers off and the brightness to minimum, with the maximum battery life plan enabled in power properties.
