    I have the upgraded 11" MBA with the i7 (and 256 GB SSD)... and I have no complaints about battery life... Obviously, I can't compare it to the i5, as I don't have an i5 MBA, but I easily get 5+ hours of steady usage...

    I suspect that it's heavily affected by the type of apps that are being used, the number of concurrent apps that are running, etc.

    The i7 would definately consume more power. It's up to the buyer to determine if it's worth the extra performance.
