MacBook Air:
I've had several of these, the latest being an 11" with the Broadwell chipset. Changing from the Ivy Bridge to Haswell in 2013 greatly improved run time. A computer that's older than 2013 (even those from 2013) didn't come with long run time from factory, and old batteries, like what would be in a $200 Air . . .

Battery Life on Linux Laptops
Just like TrueOS may be not representative of BSD, old laptops with old batteries aren't a fair test of battery life. Nor are giant Alienware 17s!

I have a now three year old Asus Zenbook UX305 that's 100% Mint, having removed Windows. It's a Core m3 processor, and will run for hours on a charge. Fanless. Silent. Reasonably swift.

The latest version of Fedora includes built in battery optimizations, mostly the same ones described in the OMG Ubuntu! link -

10 Proven Ways to Make Money Faster

My hard drive crashed and had bad sectors in it so no more Linux for a while till I can get new one LM lasted 5 months on it Bummer.

Hello from Brandon, Manitoba Canada. I would like to say that this is a great podcast, first of all, keep it up. I found this podcast after looking around looking for what I could about Linux. I was on Windows 10 for a couple of years and was having such a headache with Microsoft's OS for some time. One day after not seeing an update to the creatures update in the summer of 2017 for months; I decided to try Linux Mint 18.0 Sarah for a while in a VM. From July 2017 to September 2017. As The Fall Creatures Update was around the corner and I was stuck on the same version of windows for year +. Anyway cutting a long story short " Too Late" (Clue 1985 ref) put LM18 Sarah on hardware and love it It just works and I can do what want as normal. Some work to learn but totally worth it. As it JUST WORKS. Which for me is more then I could say of the other OS at the time.
