    so,i have a dual 2.0 MBP, brand new, the battery has been calibrated, at 95% of max settings, but very little use, IE: web browsing, everything on, i only get 1:40 for battery life. this is aweful, my 17" poewrbook for ovr 2:30 on the same settings. should this worry me?

    The screen will be what draws the majority of your power. Remember that the new screens are significantly brighter than the previous models, so unless you put them side by side to get the same brightness, you're likely running the MBP brighter.
