    Hello All,

    I just purchased a 2011 i7 MBA and will be using bootcamp to run windows 7. What kind of battery life is everyone getting with bootcamp and windows 7? I don't know if something is wrong or screwy, but I had gone through 25% of my battery in a little over an hour... I have the new powerplan7 and trackpad++ installed... not sure if that impacted anything or not? I'm just curious what other MBA users are experiencing.

    Thanks!

    That sounds about right. I get about 4hours on windows if I'm using it lightly. I can also burn through the battery in under an hour on the windows side.
    How much battery life do you get on the mac side? I have at max 8-9 hours if I'm just using a small amount of internet and the display is pretty low.
