    I'm thinking about buying a macbook pro 13 inch, but I have some programs that are only Windows compatible.

    Does anybody know what battery life the new pro gets in Windows 7?

    Definitely less battery life than running in OSX, but I don't think it will be a huge drop. The higher end models see substantial battery life drop due to the dedicated graphics card running all the time in Windows, but the 320m is the only solution in the 13", so it won't see as large of a decrease.

    Yeah I just read somewhere that the battery life on win7 is much worse.

    Somebody must have installed win7 and tested the battery life?

    I'd especially like to see Win7 gaming battery life. With such a long-lasting battery, gaming for 3-4 hours would be a great thing.
