Apple’s New 15-Inch MacBook Pro For 8 Hours All Day Computing

AnandTech [did a battery life benchmark](http://anandtech.com/mac/showdoc.aspx?i=3580&p=4) for Apple’s new 15-inch MacBook Pro, and call it “Battery Life To Die For” and “The Best Battery Life I’ve Ever Seen”.

Eight, freakin, hours. I couldn’t believe it. In my lightest test, the new 15-inch MacBook Pro lasted eight hours and eight minutes. That’s with the screen at half brightness (completely usable) and no funny optimizations. The notebook is just playing music and surfing through a lot of my old reviews. There’s no way this could be right. Maybe my test was too light?

The 15-inch MacBook Pro lasted a full 8 hours running Anandtech’s wireless web browsing test before it died. Apple claimed a battery life of 7 hour. Even with a web browsing test running a higher CPU utilization load, the new MacBook Pro lasted 6.48 hours, which is twice as long compared with last model.

Looks like no one will complain about battery being non-removable with such impressive performance.
