Sound Power Level L <sub> W A,m </sub> (B)
Sound Pressure Level Operator Position L <sub> p A,m </sub> (dB)
1.3 ( K <sub> v </sub> = 0.3)
1.3 ( K <sub> v </sub> = 0.3)
L <sub> W A,m </sub> is the mean A-weighted sound power level, rounded to the nearest 0.1 B.
L <sub> p A,m </sub> is the mean A-weighted sound pressure level measured at the operator position (rounded to the nearest 1 dB).
1 B (bel) = 10 dB (decibel)
K <sub> v </sub> is the statistical adder for computing upper-limit of A-weighted sound power level.
The quantity, L <sub> W A,c </sub> (formerly called L <sub> W Ad </sub> ) may be computed from the sum of L <sub> W A,m </sub> and K <sub> v </sub> .
The Wireless web test browses 25 popular websites.
1GB = 1 billion bytes and 1TB = 1 trillion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
Testing conducted by Apple in October 2018 using preproduction 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-based MacBook Air systems with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. Testing conducted by Apple in May 2017 using preproduction 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-based 13-inch MacBook Air systems with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. 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 iTunes 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.
