Others would agree that before the whole Intel transition, battery life was at its best with apple. I have a 2.0 MBP, and I get around 2:30-3:00 hours of battery. I bought my gf a 2.0 MB, and she gets around 3:20-3:50 hours of battery. I guess its less for me because of the bigger screen, but then again battery always depends on whether your BT is turned on, AP, brightness, etc.

I get an hour and a half from my battery (87% original capacity).

It's ace.

That's enough time to do practically nothing.
