    Hey guys
    I'm REALLY happy with my new Alu macbok. The battery life is great, i get 4 hours on high brightness surfing the web, watching the odd youtube video, word processing.
    My question is, is there anyway to maintain this long lovely battery life? I've heard things about 'training' a battery

    Just calibrate it once a month. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1490

    Other than that, your battery will die after a while (year, 2 years, more, depending on usage). It's inevitable.
