    Hi everyone.

    I have read some others having a very short battery life / weak battery performance, even less than an hour.

    I have my laptop since July 2006. I have Apple Care for 3 years.

    The battery life when I purchased it was around an hour. I was always working at home then, I guess I ignored. now the battery life is getting shorter and shorter. And on top of it, it started to shut itself off suddenly when on battery even when it is 50% charged.

    Would people who had similar experience share what they have done to work this out? I cant afford a new laptop right now, so want to make sure this works.

    thanks! :)

    Sounds like you have a dud battery and I would definitely call apple, it will be covered under applecare so, don't worry, you won't have to pay.
