    Upgraded my jan '08 MBP to Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and now my battery is only 46% capacity using Coconut Battery's tool? What? It was perfectly fine before the transition to SL and now I have to spend $130 on a battery? Throwing another $130 battery is not what I was looking forward to doing. Argh... assuming others are having problems?

    What did it show before SL. Have to tried to calibrate the battery, or reset your SMU?

    Remember, Snow Leopard just moved the battery monitor to a place that it much easier to see, it didn't eat your battery. If it wasnt failing before SL, it isnt failing now.
