L <sub> WA,m </sub> is the mean A-weighted sound power level, rounded to the nearest 0.05 B.
L <sub> pA,m </sub> is the mean A-weighted sound pressure level measured at the operator position (rounded to the nearest 0.5 dB).

K <sub> V </sub> is the statistical adder for computing upper-limit of A-weighted sound power level.
The quantity, L <sub> WA,c </sub> (formerly called L <sub> WAd </sub> ) may be computed from the sum of L <sub> WA,m </sub> and K <sub> V </sub> .

Testing conducted by Apple in February 2015 using preproduction 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5–based 13-inch MacBook Air units and preproduction 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5–based 11-inch MacBook Air units. The wireless web test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The HD movie playback test measures battery life by playing back HD 1080p content with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The standby test measures battery life by allowing a system, connected to a wireless network and signed in to an iCloud account, to enter standby mode with Safari and Mail applications launched and all system settings left at default. Battery life varies by use and configuration. See for more information.
Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
