    Anybody have a final say as to what the battery life is for the new C2Ds when the brightness is full? What about when brightness is at half?

    last night i was calibrating my battery on my new c2d mbp, and to try to speed the process along, I cranked my brightness to max, played a dvd in the background with the audio most of the way up, while streaming a 720p quicktime trailer from the apple site, all while using the migration assistant to move files of my old powerbook, with the performance settings turned to max. It still took over 3 and a half hours to drain completely, and as an interesting side note, in activity monitor neither core ever got above 50% or so.

    I e-mailed my details. Way faster. In 10 minutes I got back the accept reply. Give a call and ask for the e-mail address if you have a printscreen or scanned versions.
