My 1 year old Macbook Air (Late 2010), which I think is supposed to have 5 hour battery life, isn't quite as fast. My battery was 65%, and after watching a 1 hr 30 min movie, it is now 15%. The movie was in HD, but I don't know if that has to do with anything. Any ideas that can help me would be nice.

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion

    HD movies require more performance from the graphic card and the processor, so this may be normal. Note that Apple got 5 hours of battery with other tasks, not HD movies.


    I think it's normal, but open "System Information" app, select "Power" in the sidebar, and copy here "Charge Information" and "Health Information" to check if there's something wrong
