Looking for 15" notebook with maximum stamina only for work with Office files, while I am traveling. Please suggest some notebook with really good batteries or some special batteries?

A little smaller than you suggest: Lenovo Thinkpad T450 or one of its variants. 17 hour battery life, 14". Oh, and the battery is hot-swappable so you could go even longer if you get an extra.

I'd consider Dell XPS 15, but stick to the 1080p screen. The claimed 17 hours of battery life is optimistic (like most Windows PC makers, its figures are exaggerated), but that should still give you a healthy amount of runtime. You can even get a "Power Companion" to add some extra juice.

I'd point to the 15-inch MacBook Pro as well (9 hours of real-world battery), but that would be overkill if you're using it solely for Office work.

My Dell 15.6" with N2830 and a Samsung 850 EVO 120GB SSD, lasts for 8+ hours on a charge, web browsing.

I'm getting about 6 hours for browsing on a brand new Inspiron 15. It has a spinner drive, would probably get much better with an SSD. FHD touchscreen.

for me it would enough at least 12 hours, but I am not sure they can run such time. maybe additional battery is my only cause.

Definitely not 17 hours battery running times (link) and if it's for office use, why the 960M?

I'd probably wait for the new Latitude or go with the E7450
