    what kind of real world battery life are you seeing on the MacBook? I already have a 2010 MacBook Air 11 but I am finding it pretty slow and the battery only lasts about 5 hours. I am also considering just buying another MacBook Air 11. Can anyone compare the speed and battery life of the two? Price difference on the refurbished from Apple is about $150 less for the Air.

    Real World- around 7.5 to 8 hours. That is using remote desktop, email, office suite, and the web. I have the base model. I previously had an 11" Air, and there is no comparison in battery life.
