    That is more than enough for your stated needs. Even a 2008 MacBook will suffice your needs.

    To edit your thread title to a descriptive one, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the [​IMG] button below your message.

    Your thread title is not very descriptive, be it "Mbp" or "MBP". "Will a 13" MBP enough for my needs (no games)?" would be a better title.

    Anyway, what do you mean with "any problem so far"? A 2011 13" MBP is more power than you might even need, as you stated you only use the internet, which can be done on computers from four years ago.

    Yes, the basic 13" MBP can play some games.

    It has already been closed/deleted, as duplicate threads are not allowed, especially since it is easy to change the thread title.

    It depends on what you run at the time. I can get 7 hours with bluetooth off, screen way down, backlight off. But that is with Snow Leopard. When I was using Lion maybe 5.5 - 6 hours tops.

    If you close all the apps, you won't be able to do much.

    If you close the cover it will run for a reaaaallly long time.

    This entire thread makes my head hurt.

    OP, first you said no gaming, then you asked if the MBP would be ok for games. For some it will be fine. Just keep in mind that the 13" only has integrated graphics, so if you're playing graphic-intensive games you might notice some slowdown. How long your battery will last completely depends on what you're doing. If you're not running anything but you leave the computer open it will last for a while...but in that case, you might as well just close the lid and let it sleep.
