    i cant get more than 5 hours of battery charge on my macbook pro
    all i do is surfing the web and brightness a lil less than the half .....

    I dont know. Do the websites you view contain a lot of Flash/video? 5 hours doesn't seem that unreasonable to me.

    I get around 5-6 hrs but it fluctuates alot
    In the day time i turn the backlighting off.Screen changes accordingly.
    But i did notice 7 hrs when it did a full charge cycle once but then dropped quickly to 6 to 5 depending what im doing.
    Adobe cs4 works so freaking fast on the mbp 2.26 and I just got 4gb ram today so will install it later.
    overall im happy.

    That's probably the reason then. Youtube/flv videos are very intensive tasks thanks to Apple/Adobe's refusal to play nice with each other.
