    I have a 2011 Macbook pro 13", Im running lion right now and am getting between 5 and 7 hours of battery life. I am looking to upgrade my ram and hard drive and am wondering if that will effect my battery life? I want to go from 4 gigs of ram to 8 and from the 320 gig hard drive to a 1tb 5400 rpm one.

    ANY input would be appreciated!
