    Can those of you who actually own a new 11 or 13 inch MBA please let us know how long your battery has been lasting? Also, it would be great to know which model you have....

    Obviously this changes from application demands, ut I'm just looking for averages.

    Please no speculations from those who don't own and just want to recite Apple's values or those from reviews...

    well, Apple said they have changed their battery testing methods to more suit real world times. but still, i would take off an hour from their times as you might have the screen brightness up and be watching youtube.

    11" Got 6 hours and my brightness was btwn 30-50 percent. Never had to use more, display was bright enough. Mainly wireless surfing. Right now it claims I have 8 hours left, just idling.
