Just as the title states. Does having an SSD and another hard drive in the super drive location equate to a much lower battery life. I'm getting roughly 3 to 4 hours on battery if I just sit there and barely browse the net. The graphics card is always stuck on discrete so I used gfxcardstatus and forced it to the other one (on board) and showed roughly 4.25 hours of battery life (when fully charged) My 2010 had the same thing but instead of an ssd it was a regular platter style hard drive (had another in super drive location) and I swore I got more battery life than this. laptop specs are in my sig. I just want to know if this is average and yes the battery is fine, I've reset smc, pram, conditioned battery and it has about 75 cycles on it. Thanks it seems like after about 30 or 40 minutes of battery usage it shows about 1.5 hours of battery left. I've never just timed it and ran it down for hours yet to be certain, this is just off of the time that OSX shows me.
