    So I have a MBP Classic (early 08) and I've noticed that the battery life seems to have dropped ever since I switched to SL. I should have conducted a more scientific experiment just before the switch, but I didn't, so I can't be sure. Is anyone else having a similar experience with Snow Leopard?

    MBP 13" I think I've gained a few minutes. I used to get often a 5 to 6 hour runtime, now I more often get a 6 hour runtime and sometimes even up to a 7 hour if I'm really carefull and put java off when I'm in safari.

    I sure hope not. I'm already concerned about the non-removable battery in my 17" as it is! :(

    I have a 2.2GHz Santa Rosa and my battery life has gone in the toilet. I'm lucky to get 90 minutes now.

    Mine's the exact opposite. I get 5-6 hours if all I do is type.

    My record under Leopard on the MacBook 3,1 is 4.5 hours with the wireless on. What are you doing? :confused:
