I had written the following post a few weeks back: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1263489 I got many responses and I was happy because I felt like my problem would be fixed. I tried everything that I was told to do. Today I finished cleanly reinstalling Lion on my brand new Macbook Pro and I am still having the same problems as before: - my battery only lasts around 3 hours, with little use like surfing the internet and listening to music - the fans rev up to around 6500 when watching videos online, like Netflix, is this normal? - when using ichat/facetime/skype video they also rev up to those speeds, there my battery only lasts 30 minutes with 50% charge left. I really don't know what else to do. I don't know whether Apple will take care of my problem or not. I don't know if it is the battery, the computer itself, I just don't know. I thought that the problem was somewhere in my Time Machine back ups, but after doing the clean reinstall without Time Machine, I don't believe this to be the problem. Any ideas/comments/suggestions?? Thanks so much for your time!
