    Hey all,
    I recently bought a Macbook Pro 15" i7. I was just wondering what kind of battery life you guys are getting
    Right now it's showing 6:12 with 93 percent
    intel hd graphics, with Microsoft Word, iTunes, and Google Chrome on

    Not getting more than that, about 5 hours is the average and it's just like Mail, Safari and bluetooth devices...

    EDIT: 15" i7 as well...

    I get about 2.5 hours with my 15" non-unibody MacBook Pro.

    really depends on what you use it for can range from 2-8 hours , if you want to extend ur battery life use gfxcardstatus and force on integrated its enough for most things on the macbook and gives really good battery life, then when you fire up them pro apps like photoshop etc you can turn on the nvidia chip set :)
