I have always wondered... Is everyone using "Auto-Brightness" or setting a custom brightness?? I have only tried the auto setting a few min, but it never seemed to be right for me. Post what you use and where your brightness is set at... I really wish I could run it all the way up, but I think it would effect battery life a lot.. If I went from where I am now, to near full bright, would it cut my battery life in 1/2??
