    Does the i7 processor on the 13 inch macbook air have a noticeable impact on battery life when compared to a similarly specced i5 macbook air (ie. 4 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD)?

    This is for the 11", but there is no reason to believe it would be any different for the 13".

    Macworld had similar results. This has been discussed a lot on this forum.

    Hahaha, yes! It definitely was helpful in making my decision.

    I decided to go with the base 13 inch macbook air, and purchased it last night! :D
