My 2019 16" macbook pro has just terrible battery life. Watching my dvd rips using IINA and doing light photoshop work and I go from 100% charge down to 30% within 3 hours. That dedicated graphics card just DESTROYS the battery life.

So what would I be able to expect using this new macbook air? Also, will the built-in graphics be able to run low intensity games like zwift? Thanks!

My MBA 2018 – ancient antique version now – uses ~10% per hour while watching video. I presume the newer models are similar.
