    I've had my MBP CD since about August and keep it plugged in nearly at all times except when I go to university. I calibrate once a month and now my battery is barely lasting 2 hours. Is that normal?

    What do you mean by you calibrate the battery once a month, I have never heard of this being done?

    Depends on how how you are using it ;)

    Wireless, Brightness, are the big drains.

    it is healthy for the battery to cycle (use it to almost empty) a few times a month. I'm on cycle 16 since November. today i got about 3 and a half to 4 hours, with brightness at 3, bluetooth off.
