    Any chance we'll be seeing a slight increase in battery life with the release of Snow Leopard?

    Upgrading from my old Toshiba with 1 1/2hrs battery life, I love being able to take the computer all around the house and just docking it before I go to sleep without worrying about charge during the day, and with all the new speed increases in Snow Leopard, I'd love to get even more battery, even 15mins would be great.

    I guess anything's possible, but the new integrated batteries are really good. I got 9 hours out of mine yesterday. Compared to that, I wouldn't even notice anything less than significant improvement.

    Simon 5000, upgrading to any MacBook Pro will definitely give you a realistic 3-4 1/2 hours use on your Mac with normal/moderate usage. With light usage (light internet, iChat) will yield 4 1/2 to 6 hours.

    I doubt Snow Leopard gives better battery life or Apple would have advertised it by now. But either way, the upgrade from your Toshiba will give noticeable battery life improvement.
