So as a lot of people know, the battery life Apple claims is 3 hours less than before. But this could be good or bad. Is Apple using the MacBook Air method of claiming battery life - aka accurate unlike every other laptop manufacturer, and sometimes the claimed battery life is even worse than what the Air gets - or is the battery life actually worse on these new models? I am interested in the $2199 MacBook Pro to last me through college, and the battery life is extremely, extremely important to me. But for that price, I can wait for a Sony Z series to come out which I think I am going to do.
