The MacBook Pro offers 10 hours battery when browsing the web and 10 hours of iTunes movie playback, while the MacBook offers 10 hours of battery when browsing the web and 12 hours of iTunes movie playback.
Apple’s new MacBook Air charges over USB-C, coming with a 30W power adapter, the same that ships with the 12-inch MacBook.
