    So I read that they are the same or am I mistaken? The 7 hour change from the 10 is actually a change in a more accurate testing my Apple?

    Those who made the switch from the 2010 MBP, would you say its about equal, more or less battery life?

    I didn't switch from a 2010, but I can tell you that while doing basic web browsing, word, and excel I can get 7 hours on my 2011 15 in 2.2 i7 but if I do anything more such as watch video or transfer files that number drops to around 4-5.

    The 2011 has roughly 1 hour more battery life. The 2010 would be rated at 6 hours using new battery test.
