    is anyone else here disappointed that apple didnt make much of an attempt to seriously improve the macbook/macbook pros battery life?
    my macbook pro goes low just after around 2 hours of use. there are some 24 hour laptops on the market now!

    now that the battery is accessible, is it possible to buy another battery and slide it right in?

    #5 are lucky then
    apple advertises 5 hour battery life, when the laptop is in and idle mode.
    i surf the web quite a bit, and it always seems to go down to one bar in less than 2 hours...

    the 24 hour laptops are with the extended batter PLUS a slice battery... not very pleasant to carry around all day.

    I do love my sony TXN - gets about 10 hours with the extended battery. It's sad to see the new sony TT's actually getting worse battery life (but I guess it does have more power).
