    Did a battery calibration, and my MBP lasted about 7.5 hours with 330m GPU active and external display attached. Running transmission and torrenting linux isos to give it something to do.

    Holy crap! I'm getting 7-8 hours with a base i5 with an Intel SSD. That's awesome that you can pull that off with the 330m active and torrenting. That's just sick.

    Are you using an i5 or i7? If it's an i7, it'll blow my hypothesis about i7 power usage out of the water.

    What did you do for the battery calibration? I'm getting my new MBP in a few days. And wanna know what I should do to confirm everything is in solid working order. I never did that with my first MBP (Feb 2008 revision - when they first introduced the three finger gestures, before the unibodies though) and things have been great with the laptop, but I wanna start off properly this time and make sure everything is in working order.

    Can't wait should be getting my 15" MBP i7, 500GB@7200rpm, 8GB ram sometime this week =D

    btw those are some awesome battery stats!
