    I recently switched from a PC to a 15 inch MB Pro (great choice).

    The battery life on my old PC was pathetic and when I used the MB I couldn't believe how much battery life I suddenly had. After four months, it seems like I am not getting as much life out of the battery.

    Am I imagining this or is losing some battery life normal?

    You may have added software that runs in the background, may have applications that haven't been quit after you closed them, or may be using another version of Mac OS.

    No, I'm getting pretty great battery life. Sometimes close to 6 hours. Most of the time its around 5 and thats 3 hours more than my i3 laptop.
