    I'm trying to work out whether mine's defective or if they're all like this.

    My iBook G4 got 4 hours + on full display brightness with a new battery. I'm now getting about 3.5 hours on half brightness with my late 2008 15" MBP. The Apple site says 5 hours at half brightness... I don't want to trek out to the store for a swap if they're all the same. HOw are your new machines going in this respect?

    *yes, I've calibrated it properly!*

    3.5 hours seems kinda low maybe you should check at a apple store!
