New MacBook Pro Battery Life Lasts Less Using Vista

New MacBook Pro Battery Life Lasts Less Using Vista

A new report suggests that the new MacBook Pro Battery Life lasts significantly less under Microsoft Vista.

For all those who run Vista using Boot Camp, AnandTech says unfortunately you won't see quite the same 8.13 hours of usage.

Under OS X, this test yielded a battery life of 8.13 hours. The same test under 64-bit Windows Vista? Just over 6 hours: That’s nearly a 26% drop in battery life from OS X to Vista. When I first published these tests I spoke to a few PC OEMs to see if they had noticed any similar results. No one was willing to go on record but some OEMs did at least admit to seeing a ~20% difference between battery life in OS X and Vista.

This doesn't surprise me. Vista takes forever to boot up compared to the Mac OS. Microsoft bloats everything they touch.
