    So I'm getting an 11' MacBook air soon (4GB RAM, 128SSD) and I want to know what's the shortest and longest battery life time you guys have had with your 11' MBA's?

    2.5 hours watching a movie with full brightness and 6 hours or so with light web browsing at 50% brightness.

    Maybe 2.5 hours-3 hours shortest, 5-5.5 hours longest.

    shortest was about 2 hours. I minimized some flash game in firefox without even thinking about it that was using a lot of resources, was using it on full brightnes too.

    longest was around 6 hours. was just this weekend. watched roughly 2 full games of hockey in the basement while watching my hockey pool stats and chatting on irc, was at 15% battery when i went upstairs.

    Got the same as you. 6 hours is quite easily achieved with bluetooth turned off and brightness settings set to near minimum, with keyboard backlights turned off of course. :apple:
