    It depends on what i'm trying to do. Running high end content and many windows the battery lasts a few hours. Running "tappy chicken" i think i got 4 hours once.

      I tried this as well, even restarted the editor to make sure the changes took affect; the CPU usage didn't go down, only the visual quality. I found in another post the "t.MaxFps" setting and using this in the editor console I can get the usage way down, but only by making the FPS limit unreasonable (i.e. <10 fps) otherwise the CPU usage is just too high. I'm guessing (and hoping) its just a lack of optimization on the OSX side of things; from the sounds of it you are getting good performance and battery life with a system that specs a fraction of the battery life of the Macbook Air (not dissing it, the Razor laptop is awesome!), but you are obviously running Windows
