    Hi All

    I've got a mid 2010 mbp 15" with the following config

    owc 40gb ssd
    seagate 500gb 7200rpm hdd

    with bt on for the magic mouse and wifi on. brightness set to 1 and no k/b back light.

    I'm probably getting around 6 hours.

    Just interesting in what everyone else is getting.

    I've had it for a month and calibrated the battery twice.

    I'm using gfxcardstatus to force it to use only the intel.

    With only one 7200rpm hard disk, wifi on, bluetooth off, keyboard backlighting off, and Screen brightness auto adjusting, and the the graphics card switching as it sees fit, I do well over 5 hours.

    This machine is god-like

    Nice, mine is running good then. It also has 8gb of memory and about 4.5gb in use.

    I've switched the battery from time to %, so I'm not always watching it change per activity.
