    Anyone know how the battery life is on this 2009 model? I've read some reviews saying its in the 5 hour range for normal Safari/Instant Messaging --- but then I've read some people getting 8 hours. I was looking for some answers here.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, sorry. I guess I got over excited.

    I did some research and most people get 6-7 hours, sometimes 8, with light usage on Safari, 50% brightness, and iTunes playing in the background.

    The number goes down to 6-7 hours if a lot of flash is being used on the websites.
