What kind of battery life is everyone getting?

I'm curious to see what the real world battery life is on these new models.
MacBook Pro, 2.2ghz Quad-Core i7 Processor, 15" 1680x1050 Anti-Glare LCD, 16gbs of RAM, 500gb Samsung 840 evo SSD, AMD Radeon 6750M HD, Mac OS X + Windows 7 Ultimate

Alright well I turned my 13" i7 Air on for the first time today at about 1:00. At that time it had roughly 85% battery. After very intense usage (I'm talking nonstop at about 65% brightness), it finally died after about 5 and a half hours. It was then fully charged in 2 hours. I'm very impressed, and these batteries are actually supposed to get better with more use.
