    What kind of battery life are you getting with Macbooks?

    I have read Apple's specs on the site, but I was just curious if those of you who own Macbooks are getting similar numbers.

    Somewhere out there
    Well, I just got my new Black MacBook to replace an aged iBook 600. My biggest fear was that I would have to take a huge cut in Battery time.

    Turns out that where I was getting 4.5 hours with the iBook ( replaced the original battery with a 4800maH battery ) I am getting ~3.5 hours with the MacBook.

    Rather pleased, as my Dell from work barely gets 2 hours...far too short in my opinion.

    I don't think 5 hours would be too much. Very impressed.

    Rocketing through the sky!
    ~4 hours with BT turned off, Wifi on, music on and screen at almost full brightness. just surfing the web and emails tho, nothing too straining.
