    Hello macrumors

    I'm planning of purchasing a Macbook Air for school, and the 11 inch model would be perfect because of it's portability.
    My only concern is the battery life - 5 hrs. An upgrade to the 13 inch model would give me 2 hrs extra battery, but I really don't need the screen size as I have a stationary PC at home and a big monitor.

    Is it enough to last a whole school-day? (I'm in high school.) I don't want to charge it during classes.

    So students or employees- will the battery take you through the whole day?

    That completely depends on how you use your Mac. There are many factors that impact your battery life. See the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link for details, including tips on how to maximize your battery life.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
