    I have a 15" MBP (2.66Ghz, late 2008), I usually don't have WiFi turned off, so I just wanted to know how long does it usually last with WiFi off and semi-high brightness setting for the display. The only activity is typing in Word and maybe a few non intensive Photoshop stuff.

    I'd like to get an estimate because I have no power adapters where I'll be using it. I know I could get an extra battery, but what for eh? :D

    After a full charge, I frequently get five to six hours out of my 13" with that kind of activity.
