I bought this here beast thinking the extra long battery would be extreme. Turns out, it is not only extreme but also radical. I have been working on this thing since Friday morning. Installing/uninstalling replicating my workflow that I had setup on a Linux box (yes, lots of compilation and other crazy jazz). My battery indicator is red but it says it still has an hour left, it just will not die! My goodness, for the first time in my life my machine actually makes me feel inferior and insignificant. It's like no matter what I do it is small stuff to this beast. I should file a formal complaint to Apple. No computer should make me feel this way.
