    so my (refurb) macbok pro, is only getting around 3:30 hours just on wifi/browsing websites and not to mention garage band, iphoto use up this normal?
    the battery is at 98% health and 16 charge cycles.

    yeah, that sounds about right.

    If you turn the brightness all the way down and turn off the airport it might last longer.

    i tested out the one in the Apple Store...
    first, i had the GPU set at Better Battery, then I kept the dimness that Apple does when I pulled out the magsafe... I got about 4:20 which was pretty good. I only wished it was that time with the highest brightness setting so then I can actually take this thing outdoors...
