    Just curious, what kind of battery life are you guys getting with Lion? I haven't noticed any drop offs on my 2011 13" MBP and, in fact, seems a bit better. I do remember reading on another site some folks seeing a slight decrease. Could be immature GPU drivers on the 15"/17" though.

    My battery life has been halved. I'm getting more beach balls, and one time I couldn't even shut my computer down.

    Lion has been horrible for me. I have a reservation with the genius bar today.

    Mine's been the same. I haven't seen any drops in battery life or performance. I've been using Lion since the announcement and upgraded every DP that came out until GM. I'm currently running the GM.

    Only a small 15-20 minute loss in battery life on my 2009 MBP. This is with Safari, Transmission, Last.fm and iTunes running.

    My battery life seams to be slightly effected though its been on AC power for a bit. But I was somewhat frustrated last night when my MBP 2010 was having trouble playing 1080p for the first time with NOTHING else running...Ill give it some time though.
