    Just wondering if anyone has had enough time to test this out yet?

    I have been running the GM since it came out about 3 weeks ago and the battery life seems to be the same on a 2011 MBP 13" with SSD and HDD

    +3 (or 4?). Either way, the only people complaining about battery life are the people who are having their drives indexed by spotlight for the first 30 or so minutes of Lion.

    Also, Visca Barca.

    Am i the only one experiencing worse battery life?

    All settings in system preferences are exactly the same as on SL. Backlit keyboard off, brightness at about 40%, not watching any videos or movies or anything, and the speakers are muted. I'm getting about 3.5-4 hours instead of the 5-6 i used to get earlier this week.

    This is really frustrating- something worth going to apple for?

    This is actually becoming really frustrating. I'm getting 3 hours of battery life now. Going to the genius bar tomorrow, maybe they can tell me something I'm missing. Just an update.
