    I'm using a 2009 unibody 2.8 GHz Macbook Pro.

    I have a 24" LED Display, so always have the higher graphics card on. However once I unplug from the power at full battery, it normally settles at about ~2:30. Why is this so high? I'm talking about just web browsing etc. Surely it should be at least 3-4 hours considering new it was rated at 6 even on the higher graphics card.

    Anyway below is my coconutbattery reading, so that might help.

    Also, what is the best way to go about getting a new battery at the apple store? How could I trick them into getting me one?

    Sorry here is the image

    You already have lots of cycles (out of 1000) and have you taken a look at Activity Monitor (SHOW ALL PROCESSES and sorted by CPU)?

    Have you taken a look at any of the other hundreds of similar threads about battery life on the 2009 MBP?
    MRoogle will help you find them.
