    Hey, planning on Purchasing one of the New Aluminum MacBook Pro's.

    I would like to know what are the best ways to have your battery last longer and hold the normal charge?

    Also on the Battery Section on Apple.com it says it not good to have your computer charging all the time but then people on the forums say it's better to keep it plugged in! What is it? What should I do? Listen to Forum users or Apple)

    Also what is a good setting for the Screen Lightiness? Is HalfWay see able? What about 75 percent notches. Will lowering the battery brightness save battery?

    Then you know as much as anyone else on the forums. Or do an Mroogle search for "battery life" and you can read through the responses to the umpteen other threads on this exact same topic.
