    Hey guys,

    I just got a 13" MBP last week and am really liking it after switching over from the windows world (using vista :(). The other day I unplugged the power just to see how long the battery could last. I think I managed about 4.5 hours while using Safari and with brightness about half to 2/3 of the way full. I suppose thats pretty good for having wifi in use- what have you guys managed to get in terms of real-world battery life? Also, how important is it to fully calibrate the battery- is it something I should do now or can I wait...

    I get around 5.5 hours, the major draw is the screen, half way is the way to go.

    For your screen brightness your getting just about what id expect.
