Great! Maybe all of the USB 3.0 bugs will be worked out before the new iMacs and Mac minis drop.

I wonder if the increased CPU power consumption is what was draining my battery on the 11" MB Air. I guess I'll find out; otherwise, I'll go annoy Apple since I did get AppleCare.

Were you even offered this update in SU? I don't see anything for a 13" MBA from 2011.

I have the 2012 MB Air that came out a few weeks ago. It seems like the latest release of laptops had the overpowering issue, and that's what the update is for. Your 2011 Air shouldn't have this issue, so the update won't show in SU.

Do you think your system has this issue?

Sorry, I thought you owned a 2011 MBA.

I've been having battery drainage issues since the 10.7.4 update. I'm not really sure why though. I'm just hoping that Mountain Lion helps me out at this point.

Try draining the battery till the computer can't power on any more, and than fully charge it without using the laptop until it's fully charged.

...before doing that, take a look at your start up programs and see if there's anything in there that might be taking extra resources.

Are you using Windows on Boot Camp or a Virtual Machine by any chance? I've noticed Boot Camp doesn't last as long on battery when compared to OS X. A VM will kill battery much quicker.
