    Im running the 4 GB Ram with 128 Hard Drive. So I bought the 13" version on eBay and the guy shipped it last Thursday....ON SLEEP MODE. I didn't receive it until today and the battery was at 96%. Ive been using it all day today with WiFi since 2 pm and its only at 7 pm. Sorry but i haven't used a mac since the Macbook Pro from 2005. So the battery improvement is huge to me. Especially for something this thin...Its running Yosemite too..

    Yes, I agree. I have a refurb 2013 11" Air and the battery consistently lasts 8-11 hours on a charge. They definitely undersold this generation's battery performance.

    Yea I remember the magic of it back when it was with Mavericks. Yosemite kinda made it pretty bad but now I almost always have it plugged in while using so I don't notice. I hope El Captaino makes it better.

    Yea i think i am going to get rid of my PC next. If Windows 10 doesn't fix the bugs i have on Adobe and microsoft office, then BYE BYE. Both my work and home PC are pretty high on specs with 3.4 GHz six core processors, 8 GB of RAM. And I ran the disc only version with windows 7 Ultimate without a serial key and it was fine for the majority of the time. As soon as i put the serial key on ultimate, it started force quitting my programs very frequently.

    Just can't stand it anymore. Ill get a Mac Mini if thats what it takes.

    really? yosemite battery runs well on my computer. The guy shipped it on sleep mode on a Thursday, got it Monday at 95% charge and it lasted me 2 more days on watching videos and browsing the internet. Must be something wrong.

    Its nothing wrong. Reread my post. I had my MBA when Mavericks was out through Yosemite. The battery life was simply better in Mavericks.
