    Are there any benchmarks of this? It should still be relatively good as it doesn't have to deal with the power draw/drivers of a dedicated card, right?

    I would be interested in knowing this too, and whether the fan kicks in loudly because its booted into anything thats not OSX.

    It looks like the 13" gets ~ 7 hours and 40 minutes under windows and 11 hours and 18 minutes under Mac OSX

    So the windows side is getting about 70% the battery of the mac os x side under identical conditions. One could assume that the 15" is similar?

    with the 750M, it was estimating 5 hrs for me. I never ran it down completely to actually see if it was accurate, though.
