Hi,
I've been using my PB for the past 4 months now and I'm loving it! (Just a recent switch from Windows). The only thing that annoys me is the battery, does Apple make any long-lasting / Heavy Duty batteries? mine lasts for about 2:30hrs tho' compared to Centrino laptops 6hrs. Thanks :)

Apple only has one kind of battery per PB (right now anyway, but there are 3rd party batteries with increased (slightly) capacities. I've been eyeing the one from NewerTech (http://www.macsales.com) for a little while now. The higher capacity one is the same price as the Apple battery.
