    So, I FINALLY got my battery replaced at an Apple Store and now it's showing I have 4:45 min of time left. I never saw it that high before. I have my backlight turned down about 1/2 way and turned off bluetooth, just to see if it would increase (it didn't).

    Is this from some of the updates or did I get a super cool battery? Before my batter died, about 3 months ago, it was never more than 3 hours.

    By the way, I have a Core Duo MacBook with 2.0Ghz and 512MB RAM (I'm waiting for Leopard to up the RAM and HD space).

    Its quite normal for a new battery with bluetooth off and half brightness...

    Bluetooth's on and I just remembered my brightness was at full, until it started bothering me.

    Oh well, maybe I'm just excited because I can actually use my non-desktop computer AWAY from my desktop. It took me months to get an appointment set up for a Genius to look at this thing.
