Did a test this morning to see how long the battery would last. Had a full charge to start. Running Firefox (pretty constant browsing with a few breaks) and Mail. Airport turned on. Set Powersave to not allow the computer or screen to sleep. Turned brightness to about 2/3rds.

Result: 4 hours 45 minutes

This is best case since I wasn't doing much to exercise the disk, but not bad.

ONly result I have is starting from 100%, wireless off, screen at 50%, running Logic Pro 8 continuously in a recording session, recording vocals, deleting tracks, recording, adding effects, etc - cpu pegged at about %95 the entire time,

I got 3:00 hours exactly until i had 1% left.
