    Love my new macbook air 11, best laptop I have ever owned, only thing i miss is lack of SD card reader, but overall battery life has been amazing, and performance has been very solid, I have just blogged http://appscreencast.com about some macbook air accessories, which solved that issue.

    Great battery features, you can always use more battery life, if you use your Macbook Air or Pro for work and need even more, I found 8 Unlimited Solar to have some great battery charger options. I think they even have battery/chargers for iPads, just thought someone may find this info useful. http://www.8unlimitedsolar.com/macbookipadiphone-external-battery-chargers.html
