    Hey Guys,

    Going to be flying soon for 6 hours and wondering the best way to make my 15" MBP I7 battery last as long as possible.

    Would mostly being watching Tv programmes and playing the Sims 3, any recommendations to get the most out of my Amps. :).

    If you got the AG screen, then you can put it on 1 bar of brightness. But I'm not sure if you're going to reach 6 hours when gaming to be honest even on 1 bar of brightness.

    So stick to watching movies, you'll get 6 hours like that :)

    Or you could ask the flight attendant if there's a plug underneath your seat. Then again thats probably only for international flights (assuming you're flying domestically)
