    What sort of battery life do you get on the new mb? Do you find it heavy to cary?

    I can get up to 5hrs but while running programs and with a viewable brightness the average is probably 3-3.5hrs. it's not heavy at all.

    um getting a bit over 5 hours using moderate screen brightness and running firefox and adium.

    as far as heavy to carry, i dont think so.
    I dont recall what my specs were regarding weight in my 12" PB, but i this macbook seems lighter to me.
    I could be wrong, i have been fooled before ;)

    I get about 4 and a half hours to 5 hours mostly. I only really use safari, mail, msn messenger, and itunes. which i think is enough battery time :) alot better than the vista laptop i came from, would be lucky to get 2 hours on that thing.

    That is a lot better than the mbp which from what I have seen gets like 3-3.5 hours. I am curious how the mba compairs.
