    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    There are currently no viruses for Mac OS X in public circulation, only a handful of trojans and other malware, which have to be installed manually via entering the administrator password.
    The only anti-virus you need to protect your Mac is education and common sense.

    Here's a cool app i found useful... Caffeine

    On my MBA i set the energy setting for the screen dim & sleep for better battery performance. Well sometimes when reading off my MBA or waiting for a download or something, i don't want to go into setting and re-set the energy setting so the screen remains on and/or the screen doesn't dim, then going back in setting and re-set everything.

    With the App Caffeine... A coffee cup icon installs on the menu bar top right, i click it, and the screen with remain on, when i'm done, i just click it again and my setting are activated again. Comes in Handy.

    I'm in the Apple Group

    This really belongs in OSX or something, not MBP. It's not hardware specific.
