    Ok when I bought this thing, I easily got 5 hours, but two years later and 489 charge cycles (according to coconut battery) I am lucky to get 3 Solid hours of web browsing.

    What is the life span of these batteries, I am assuming I might just go to Apple and buy another one for $129.00 a rip off but what can I do, I will not use another brand of battery.

    Any suggestions, or what time are you guys getting out of your batteries.

    Crud I missed that, ok mine states 100% so I guess that is a good thing, just not sure why it dies quicker, maybe it is the 500GB 5400 RPM WD Scorpio Blue, ever since I went from my Hitachi 320GB 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache to this WD battery life and performance is in the toilet.
