    I have been having horrible battery issues and I'am wondering is it just mine or something defective about the notebook line

    The battery would last only about 2 1/2 -3 hours of which could be web browsing, typing a document, looking at PDF's etc.

    I have even done test with and without Flash or Silverlight, it gets worst with them by far. How long is the battery supposed to last and under what conditions.

    Have a look at Activity Monitor (Applications / Utilities /) and select All Processes and sort by CPU to see what the culprit may be.
    Also check the "System Memory" tab to see what your "Page ins:", "Page outs:" and "Swap used:" are.
