    You can probably get up to 4.5 hours with normal usage with the 9400m, but you'll get up to two hours less with the other card. I don't have one, but my friend does.

    Really it depends on what your doing and what GPU your using. I have the unibody with 2.53 CPU and 512 MB vram. I get about 4 hours or less of web browsing using the better battery life, and about 2 hours using the higher performance, this is with a new battery as well. So many factors effect your battery life, wireless, bluetooth, screen brightness, battery condition, ect. At most I've gotten is 5 hours just listening to itunes without the screen on and 45 minutes going full blast rendering movies, so anywhere really in that range. Hope that helps

    I get about 3:30 + on wifi using the net with screen brightness a little under half brightness (not watching youtube or videos) and about 4:30+ with wifi on and not having the browser open. 4:45 to 4:50+ with wifi off. I guess that is pretty good considering my battery compacity is slowly dropping below 98% :eek:
