Let's hope that Anandtech test battery life in their presumably forthcoming reviews of Windows 8.1 and OS X Mavericks. We need more data to confirm what is being suggested above (although it doesn't look good for Windows). I've been amazed that one of the key features of Windows 8.1 was improved battery life over Windows 8, yet many reviewers didn't bother to test it. The few reviewers that have (Anandtech included, although they've only done a preview) found no difference or a marginal decrease. Furthermore, battery life is a very objective measure (unlike more subjective measures of design and aesthetics) and a key selling point that could sway undecided buyers to purchase a Macbook over a Windows laptop. In other words, Microsoft would do well to take this problem very seriously.
