Battery Life

The MacBook does gain some energy efficiency benefits from Apple's decision to use low-power processors. But again, the emphasis is on saving space to make the MacBook thinner and lighter—rather than enabling long battery life. Apple promises up to 10 hours of battery life on a charge for the MacBook, which has a 41.4WHr battery.

The XPS 13 features a much larger battery, 60WHr, and promises a good deal more battery life per charge --13 hours for the non-touch version (estimates aren't provided for the touch-screen version).
