    Hey guys, I just calibrated my battery for the first time yesterday (first time since I bought the laptop in August) and the first thing I noticed was a significant drop in battery life. Normally on a full charge I would get around 5 hours of use and after calibration I was only getting 4 hours so I didn't worry about it. Except today I have had to charge my MBP 3 times and now after a full charge it says I will only get 3:30 hours of charge. That seems like a big drop in one day. Whats going on here?

    Depends on what you'r doing. You understand that battery life depends on usage, and not on what your "Time Remaining" shows you, right? This topic has been rehashed countless times already. Only a very small percentage of posters inquiring about their battery have an actual (vs. perceived) problem.

    I guess the fact that I paid $2000 for this computer makes me weary of things going wrong with it. And yes, I do understand that it just seemed odd that it dropped that much.
