    I just got a new mbp 13 last week. Super excited but I haven't been able to get 10 hours of battery life. With half dim, bluetooth off looking at pictures on facebook i get 8 hours tops. Can anyone help me out??

    There are numerous threads about battery life in the new MBPs. Use Mroogle or scroll down the first page in this forum.

    The claimed battery life usually are under extreme circumstances. Usually just a marketing ploy to sell.

    8 hours is pretty good if you ask me, considering what you're doing with it.

    Same, I'm hitting about 6-8 hours under 'normal' usage. I can't really complain though, it's pretty good for me.

    I once took it to work w/out the charger, and using vmware, flash, ppt, excel, it lasted me at least 5 hours.
