I reviewed (for MPC / PCWorld Finland) a 2012 MacBook Air 13" and run the battery tests on OS X, Ubuntu, Windows 7 and Windows 8. OS X was fare superior: five hours on video playback, Windows 7 and Ubuntu came second with approx. 3,5 hours and Windows 8 was left last at 3 hours. This was with full brightness. On light workload (OpenOffice, music, video, zip/unzip, Adobe Reader etc.) OS X clocked eight hourds, Windows 8 and Ubuntu 5,5 hours and Windows 7 five hours. This was with 120cd/m^2 brightness. I also ran Geenbench on all the platforms. Windows 8 performed the best, Ubuntu 2nd, OS X and Windows 7 shared the third place. On OpenGL (Cinebench, not available on Linux) Windows 8 was the fastest, Ubuntu 2nd fastest and Windows 7 the slowest.
