    I wonder what battery life would be if Apple used an ULV CPU...

    6+ hours :)

    Engineering is all about tradeoffs e.g. smaller package = higher voltage to compensate for lower conductivity.

    TDP was lowered, and it isn't a handicapped chip so performance should be pretty good for its intended markets (as a secondary/light duty portable Mac).

    I'd love to get one but the price is higher than I'd like vs. the feature set and how I'd use it.
