Battery Is The New MHz

by Christopher Paul on June 17, 2013

I was home when Apple had their main WWDC keynote and was elated when I saw the new MacBook Airs; I’m going to pick up one as soon as I can. I was also a little disappointed to see the clock speed slower than the other models but I reserved full judgement for the speed benchmarks. But having sat on it for a few days and seeing the recent battery test results, I’m in agreement with the statement that battery is the new MHz.

When the iPad can do anything a laptop can, speed isn’t so much a factor in buying. It’s trained people to think differently about their purchase and forced them to look at things that actually matter in real life.
