    when i usually use my mac without the power cable i dim the screen a couple of notches, when im on facebook doing some facebook games, Farmville, Bricks breaking etc etc i usually get about 6 and a half hours batter! mine curently says 7 hours remaining and i have been using it 50 minutes without the power cable!

    i reckon i might have another 6 hours out of it!

    I don't game.
    My normal use is wifi on, BT off, brightness at 50%, I have open Mail, Sugarsync, skype. And working with either Pages, Illustrator, or Excel or maybe surfing with Safari. In such conditions I normally reach 4 hours. MBP 13", factory conditions, 2 weeks old, battery calibrated a week ago.

    Um, it can last anywhere from 0 minutes if your battery is defective all the way up to 9 hours or so. The most I've ever gotten is 9, but I wasn't doing anything outside of using a text editor.

    woah. If im on a game such as farmville, i only get about 2:30, but if im not then i get about 6 hours.
    Farmville makes my battery suck.

    Also my battery seems rubbish after snow leopard.
    I hate snow leopard, especially after it deleted all my files :(

    This isn't really a MBP, its my school MB. The battery lasts about 4 hours doing things like surfing the web and word processing etc...

    The new MBPs should last 5 or 6 hours doing casual stuff. 4 at the least:cool:
