Laptop battery life is a delicate and challenging subject. Mainly because there is no single reliable test and one scenario that fits all equipment. Most of the manufacturer’s assurances during the conference can be placed between fairy tales, because we do not know exactly under what conditions and in which settings these working times are being achieved. In an ideal world, the laptop manufacturer shows the slightest modesty and will not be affected by the hours specified for operating the device on a single charge, because in normal use it is inaccessible. But Intel went further, and decided to compare one of its CPU laptops to the MacBook Air running on the Apple M1, and … I have no idea who made this comparison, but it totally fell off.

A better laptop on Windows or MacBook?

This is a question that has encouraged people for years, and in my opinion, there are no good answers to it. MacBooks are great, both the Pro and Air, but they have a lot of limitations. Unlike Windows Ultrabooks, it doesn’t offer access to most games, a touchscreen, you can’t choose between models that differ from one another, and Intel’s arguments that laptops are better. Yes, Intel has created a page to compare these devices, “Be real, go to PC”. And yes, it’s the same Intel company that has been installing its processors in MacBooks for years, and it now appears to be hating Apple with all its blue heart. And this site has been a hit, because if you look at our MacBook Air battery life comparison with M1 and Acer Swift 5 vs Intel Core i7 … the MacBook wins. About 6 minutes, but still. I might be weird, but when making comparisons like this, you should find equipment that clearly shows the product you stand behind wins, right?
