Has anyone installed Mavericks on a new Air?

The vid doesn't answer the question. At all.
It really doesn't answer the question of the battery life, but it does show an extensive walkthrough of Mavericks, which, strangely enough, I have not been able to find on YouTube at all. So to me the link is useful regardless.

I installed it earlier today on my 2013 13" i7 MBA. I suspect it needs to settle in but it said 18 hours battery life remaining

13" i5/128/8gb 2013 w/ 10.9 DP1. Showing 60% / 8:52 left. Have been using most of the day off and on for web browsing and email. Includes about 30 mins when I was sitting outside with full brightness, couple of small photo edits, some shopping purchases, and some uploading. Usually average about 35 - 40% brightness when I'm using it.

I'm thinking the 12-14 hour range is completely doable (consistently) with 13".

All day usage is finally here...

I'm running 10.9 b2 on my new 11" i5 and I'm at 53% battery and its telling me 5:04 battery left. I will say the battery time jumps up and down a lot depending on what you're doing.

True

It clocked. And I used it for 16 hours. All with Safari and Mail Open doing their stuff.

edit: Sitting at 52% today with 9 hours left. Better than before.

Has someone used the AirPlay to Apple TV for a second display with the new MBA? How well does it run? Will it work on Apple TV 2?

Yes. 12-14 hrs. Less than 40% brightness typically. Casual mail and Safari, some light iPhoto.
