Bob's experience matches mine.

I have a 2007 BlackBook, and the battery gets used maybe once a month. It RARELY gets below 50% on that one occasion, maybe once every six months I'll let it go down below 20%.

It is on the mains 99% of the time, and still gives me three to four hours of battery on those occasions where I need it after 2.5 years.

I'm afraid the Apple guy was wrong on this one.

Of course, he COULD have been speaking about the new "sealed" battery, I don't know anything definitive about those.
