does this sound right for battery time?

    My 15 inch mbp (bought in September) was fully charged when I unplugged it at 830 am today. I used it until 1000 am just doing some basic web surfing. I put it to sleep until about 4 pm. I've been using it for the past 15 minutes just web surfing again. the battery is down to 49%. I bought it in September, but it sat in the box until November. since then it has been used sparingly. if I don't use it for a few days, I turn it off. Other wise it's plugged in and in sleep mode.

    Just wondering if I should still have more battery life than that

    Have you calibrated it yet?
    Have you taken a look at Activity Monitor and seen what uses how much CPU (sort by CPU after selecting SHOW ALL PROCESSES)?
    Have you read any of the other thousands of similar threads?

    Just calibrate your battery monthly and drain the battery every couple days to get the electrons moving and you'll be fine.
