    The times quoted by Apple will be with the MacBook running with minimum requirement i.e. wifi off, no bluetooth, etc! i only have essential programs running on mine, the screen brightness reduced and the keyboard light down to 50% the battery performance increases greatly!

    With you only getting it yesterday the battery will get better once it is conditioned when it has had a few cycles of charge and discharge

    Also try resetting the SMC & PRAM settings! see the Apple links below it is always good to follow these if you ever have performance issues!

    RESET SMC LINK

    RESET PRAM SETTINGS

    Hope this helps :)

    it's rated 8-9 hours but that's with everything practically on low

    flash videos and sites displaying flash content will drain your battery life more quickly

    won't get 8-9 hours with the screen at 100%
