    little over 50% I don't usually run my equipment at full brightness just cause it burns batteries faster and I can see fine at a lower level.

    Same here. I usually have 6 of the MBA's 16 brightness indicator increments lighted, which is 37.5 percent of maximum brightness.

    Haha, I'm at 6 bars ... 6/16 =) I tend to like this brightness setting in a normally lit room for some reason. 1-2 bars (6.25-12.5%) when i'm in a room with the lights off.

    Of course there are 1/4 increments too (by using shift+option F1 or F2 ...)

    About 85% to 90%: I don't run my TVs in torch mode, but I like my computer screens bright because it's much easier for me to read. :)

    I keep it at around 50%. First dimmer screen feels weird but you get used to it in matter of minutes.

    Can you see the screen well in the sunlight? I always have trouble, especially with videos.

    I keep it at 50%. I don't see a huge difference between bars at higher levels.. Sometimes gone as low as 1 bar..

    around 60%. I turned it up and down as needed. I am not really worry too much about the battery. I charge it when I need to, instead of worry too much about it. Just use it and enjoy it :p

    1 Bar above 50% (9 bars) right now. But that's 'cause I'm in a dark(er) room.

    Can see it surprisingly well. Amazing how bright the display is to be able to overpower the sun.
