oh im sorry i meant the battery life
3.3 hrs on mine from full charge to lights out
The display backlight and keyboard backlight have a huge impact on MBA battery life. I've found I can get nearly 5 hours if I turn off keyboard backlight and keep the display backlight at a reasonable, low level.
I get abaut 4,5 hours when doing light things like surfing web or reading email. It'll be even 6 hours if I switch to better battery life mode and use processor preference pane to disable another cpu.
i can get 3.5-4hrs through web surfing, iTunes, and iChat
2.5 hours when using vmware fusion w/ fans at 6200, max keyboard light, auto brightness.
4+ hours with just wifi, typing, in class, etc.
5+ hours no wifi just reading articles, etc.
doing normal stuff surfing and writting stuff for school, oh and email i'd say around 4:15 hours.
What is the "processor preference pane"?
I spend a lot of time doing light web stuff -- it sounds like something that would add some battery life for me.
Books so good, they'll keep you up past your bed time.
My current MBA was purchased on Monday, August 18, '08, and when I run it on CoconutBattery 2.6.3 and my iStatsPro I'm seeing similar stats, but neither says 100% healthy. And though I just bought my MBA on Monday, it says it's 3 months old. SN#W8823 = 23 Week 2008.
I get about 3-4 hours usually with music playing all the time while browsing, downloading, and doing papers
