Will the macbook pros have a better battery life when they update?
Reply hazy, try again
I think they will squeeze one more hour out of them.
7 hours 23 minutes sharp.
"Yes. No. Maybe. I don't know, could you repeat the question?"
TBH, i reckon itll say the same, battery technology doesn't advance as fast as you think... especially in the retail sector as new battery designs take years to test, especially after the exploding battery fiasco.
If they go Arrandale, the probably will. Westmere brought improvements such as shutting down idle cores, and apparently the 6-core monster will be able to shut down more of the chip, such as the cache.
I think so. The iPad has 10 hours, and I think the MBP will be even higher.
It all depends on which chip they use, I am prett sure the battery itself will stay the same but they might be able to tweak OSX to get more life out of that battery, or maybe they will use a different GPU which is more conservative. And then of course there's arrandale which claims to be alot more power conservative.
nice logic there buddy
im hoping they build a version of each the 13, 15, and 17 without a superdrive and give you the option to either fill that space with more battery, or add a 2nd HDD/SDD. Then if you add the battery it could really make for a whole day without charging..
Look at Lenovo T410 Batterylife tests. Since the battery will be as big unless they come up with a stupid 16:9 case the battery life will slightly decrease. They will probably market the same 7h.
I don't understand the logic behind creating such silly threads, why would you want to ask something that no one knows ?
The iPad also has a much smaller processor and screen, and no moving parts. How did you come to that conclusion, then?
The new MBP's will run for one year straight without needing a charge.
Next MBP Battery Life?
I heard there was a lifetime guarantee that the battery wouldn't need charging as long as you owned you MBP.
Same, I also heard that it will transmit power wirelessly and charge other devices, like iPhones and iPods.
And they come with a screen that attaches to your face and never dies.
Yeah, this Tread was dead.
i agree with the whole concept, i dont understand why laptop technology is skipping the whole "lets try to make a lap top that will last you the whole day without charging, with full use" and instead we're going straight to "lets make it as thin and small as possible"
whats the point of a thin, small "portable" laptop when you need to bring your cables and a whole building for an electrical outlet with you all the time??!!
