    On my 2.8GHz, I don't see more than 4:30 actual use time. It only reports 4:59 max. I have everything at its lowest (or off) setting.

    I should have noted that I DID have wifi on. Surfing the internet on nothing more intensive than forums.

    I yearn to have such a paltry battery life. My late 06 MBP only gets ~2.15 on a new-ish battery!

    Still a sweet bit of kit - hard to justify a new purchase when it still does everything exceptionally well :D

    Enjoy yours!
