New Apple MacBook Pro with 7-8 Hours Long Battery Life

Apple has released new MacBook Pro computers with a 40% longer battery life. On a single charge, the new MacBook Pro lasts up to 7 hours, while 17-inch MacBook Pro lasts 8 hours! Moreover, now they can be recharged up to 1000 times, compared with only 200 to 300 times for typical notebooks.

They say Advanced chemistry and Adaptive Charging allow the battery to maintain charging capabilities longer and determines the optimal way to charge the battery’s cells. Because the battery lasts up to five years, MacBook Pro uses just one battery in the same time a typical notebook uses three. Read more about the Macbook Pro battery.

    to be able to achieve such a long battery life, one have to sacrifice performance, brightness of LCD, no Wifi and more.

    The battery are still more of less of the same technology, unless they decided to go nuclear, I doubt we are gonna have a good notebook experience over battery life.

    Why would anybody ever buy a Vista? Let’s say the dell does have that long of a battery life. Ok, we have established that. Now it is still is hugely inferior.

    Mac Book is great to own but the price is to high compared to other laptops. How I wish i could have one and also I doubt if the battery will last for 7 hours when the performance of the laptop is in its highest… Maybe 5 hours…

  4. Sung says:

    i doubted this as well but after buying one myself. i was surprized at how i can use my MPB for 6-8 hours without problems. if i am running parallels. then it drops to about 2.5 -3 hrs but running normal mac programs and simple web surfing, chatting, and itunes allowed 6-8 hrs. 8 hrs only happens if only safari/firefox is on with no other programs running. and display light at lowest though.

    I wonder if I can just buy the new battery and use on my Late 2008 model MBP. It’s the same as the current model (LED Backlit, Dual GPU, etc) except the SD card change.

    Anyone tried this?

    • Lantrix says:

      Oh. My bad. I should have realised, its built into the new models. No more removable batteries.
