    ... when I leave it playing five 720p videos on loop at 3x speed with the brightness all the way up, the airport and bluetooth, the graphics on high, and a torrent going.

    I dunno, do you think I should start a class action for less than 4 hours battery life?



    Actually I was just cycling the new battery. Figured I could speed up the process of drainging the battery if I could get the CPU up to a constant 200%

    You might as well start class action suits with every other device manufacturer while you're at it ;)

    Actually I'm extremely happy with this MacBook Pro.

    It's replacing a 17" 2.16 Core Duo model, and even at 200% it barely gets warm underneath, whereas the old one could burn you. It's cosmetically perfect, beautifully designed (black and alum is a great combo), and I love the glossy screen (and I'm a designer who relies on it for color accuracy!). Doing photoshop work with all the features turned on I get about 4 hours, as advertised.
