Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

But it's not all rosy in Steve's garden. The 11.6in Air put in the weakest battery life timing of any 11.6in notebook I've tested. Yes, looping PCMark Vantage over and over will drain the battery far more quickly than regular web browsing, but at least it gives us a solid point from which to compare one machine with another. You can double the PCMark Vantage battery life to get a rough real-world figure, but that doesn't let the Air off the hook.
