My Macbook Air Battery Life

As many of your know, I recently purchase the 13-inch Macbook Air. I've found a great reason to not install Adobe Flash on the MacBook Air. My battery life was awesome for the first couple days, until I installed Flash on my Macbook Air.

It’s 11-inch MacBook Air the battery life of the notebook was reduced by 33%. During my tests this reduced the my Macbook Air run time from approximately 6 hours and 30 minutes to right at four hours. This extra 2 and a half hours would be very useful on the plane or on a long car ride.

I uninstalled Adobe Flash yesterday and haven't really missed it throughout my work on my Macbook Air...what are your experiences? Flash is just too inefficient for Apple to install it out of the box on their devices. It hurts their "battery life" ratings too much to included it I assume...
