    I can browse Safari for about 45 minutes before my battery is at 0%. I don't think this is normal and it didn't use to be like this. And when I browse, it's not super battery intensive stuff, just regular web pages. I also have the display dimmed a bit and the screen is set to go to sleep after one minute. The processer is set to Reduced.

    What can I do to fix this? I do not have an Apple warranty, but I'm willing to get one if I need it. How much does a replacement battery cost? And one more question: If I get a warranty, can I get Apple to replace my computer or would they just replace the battery?

    Thanks for the help.:)

    EDIT: Just got this info from coconutBattery.

    Is that normal?

    Just tested it agian, it now runs out in 30 minutes. I have to keep it plugged in constantly. This is getting worse.
