    Hi,

    I've tried searching all over for a consensus on this and keep getting mixed mesages, but in a comparison between the bottom end 2.26 Macbook Pro 13" and bottom end 2.53 15" dos anyone know if either has better battery life? What I mean is, does the slightly slower processor compensate for the slightly larger 15" battery capacity?

    Thanks!

    P.s. trying to decide between antiglare low end 15" and low end 13" - if battery life is the same it's all down to the best screen. What I want is a 13" anti-glare! :rolleyes:

    Likely doesn't take the difference of 13 watt hours to power an extra 2 inches.

    Go for the 15" for the antiglare if nothing else.;)

    Apple says 7 hours for both. 13" has 58-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery while 15" has 73-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery. Shouldn't be big difference
