    Hey everyone... Just wondering, what is everyone getting for battery life on their MacBook Pro C2Ds with the LED backlights??

    I ask because in the few days I've been using mine, I only seem to get under an hour of realtime battery life - that is, with a middle screen brightness setting and Airport.

    I've turned off BT and the keyboard backlight. However, it seems odd to me that they would get this poor battery life. My 400MHz Ti can do 3 hours easy...

    Any ideas??

    It depends on what you're running, but with average light use (i.e. not running games or anything that really thrashes the CPU) you should get something around 3-4 hours.

    Sounds like you have a bad battery...

    speaking of bad batteries, I have to call Apple... mine keeps shutting down at 33% since the battery update:mad:

    My battery has just died again with a black X through it. That one lasted all of two weeks and had a pretty poor charging life, so i wonder if I just got unlucky with another bad one.

    Humm, so how do I got about fixing this?? Call Apple? I suppose a better question is, what's their policy on this issue??
