    There is a thread for this in the MacBook Pro forum as well.. but figured I'd ask people here too..

    I have the 11 inch first gen (1.4ghz c2d 2 gigs of ram)

    It seems that after updating my OS to Lion my battery life after a full charge has dropped from 8.5+ish hours to under 3 hours.

    Anyone else ?

    I'm gonna give apple a call tomorrow, see if its on their radar at all.

    with the hardware of the first gen, it's hardly a surprise you'll have worse battery life due to Lion being the most demanding OS X so far. Lion alone requires at least 2GB RAM to install so you are really lacking in that department
