    Today i ran purely on battery for my days work

    I did my usual tasks, loads of browsing, adwords, chat, terminal, coding

    My battery is currently reporting 3 minutes remaining

    That gives a total of 8 hours on battery but that includes 1 hour sleep for lunch

    I must admit that sounds too fantasy as it's exactly 7 hours on battery, but if i'm honest i've got 3 minutes remaining and i'm 10mins from the 8 hour mark.

    I have been running default settings, bluetooth on but asleep, wifi on all the time, lower automatic brightness and screen dim and sleep on default.

    Awesome battery life. i5 1.7ghz.

    What is your brightness level of the screen? How many bars out of 15?

    What is the battery life like in windows? The 2010 13" MBA had roughly the same battery life in windows as in OSX, unlike the current MBP, which has poor windows battery life.

    I'm trying to find a review (early yet, I know) of windows battery life on the new MBA 13"
