AnandTech’s MacBook Air SSD Benchmarks

Anand Lal Shimpi’s real-world testing indicates that the SSD option improves battery life noticeably with the MacBook Air:

As expected, the impact on battery life isn’t huge but it’s definitely noticeable. With the 64 GB SSD installed we’re actually able to hit Apple’s 5 hour battery life claim with the MacBook Air. Our wireless browsing test actually saw the biggest improvement in battery life, increasing a full 43 minutes from a simple drive swap.
