Windows 8 How's your battery life?


New Member
So I know a lot of computers and laptops don't have drivers out there for Windows 8 yet. But I was curious how your battery life is. I have a 13" MacBook pro and my bootcamp drivers seem to choose when they want to work so my screen brightness has been stuck around 100% and I've been getting about 2 hours worth of light usage with Windows 8. I've mostly been using a combination of IE10 for metro, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Office. Compare that to battery life in Mac OSX 10.7 Lion I get about 4 hours. I'm not sure if that is because of bad drivers or the OS.

How's your battery life?

p.s. I tried changing my power plan and adjusting screen brightness in the OS and it doesn't effect anything. (aka dropping brightness doesn't actually drop my brightness)
