    So far I'm really happy with my new 2.53 ghz MBP. I'm averaging 3.5 to 4 hours of battery life in OS X, but when I switch over to Boot Camp running XP SP3, I get about a single hour of battery life after a full charge. This occurs even when my display is set to be fairly dim. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any solutions? I do have the 7200 RPM 320gb hard drive, but I can't believe it would be the sole cause of my poor battery life.

    Thanks in advance.

    BUMP. What are you all getting for battery life in XP on the late '08 MBP? Maybe I'm just expecting too much out of Windows.
