Apple promises that the laptop should deliver the same power to the flashlight as when connected to the mains, but then the question is how long the battery will last. Fans should be able to push 50% more air than the previous generation, however the notebook should be quiet and for most light applications it should even be able to cool passively. We also worked on the sound. There are 6 speakers and Apple promises 80% more bass.
