    Im planning to buy a new 13" MBP but im kind of concerned on the battery performance.

    Specs:
    a) 2.26 GHz CPU
    b) Upgrade RAM to 4GB
    c) Upgrade HD to 500GB 5400 WD
    d) Brightness at 70% / with keyboard backlight / Bluetooth OFF

    Questions: (Can you give me an ESTIMATE on the following)

    1) How long will the battery last if i play Facebook games nonstop (poker / mafia wars / cafe world / etc)

    2) How long will the battery last if i play Sims3 nonstop?

    3) How long will the battery last if i watch a DVD movie nonstop? (from the drive)

    4) How long will the battery last if i type documents nonstop?



    BTW, can this MBP 13" play sims3 in the default normal settings? Tnx

    should be a bit more than halved. (3 hrs maybe) it's gpu's pretty good and should be able to handle normal settings on any game.:cool:

    Probably not. Graphics-heavy games and Flash are very good ways to run down your battery in a hurry.
