    Thanks in part to ever increasing processor efficiency, the battery life of Apple's MacBooks improve with each new model release. However, the battery life of your brand new machine will inevitably start to fade over time, and you’ll find yourself with less working time between charges.

I have a static studio setup, and a mobile rig for my ‘on the road’ needs, and both of my rigs are built around refurbished machines.
