I can get about 5 hours or so on my macbook if I turn the brightness down to just one tick (which is still plenty bright) and I'm doing things like surfing the internet or typing up stuff on Word. If you want to watch a movie, you can get about 3-3.5 hours out of a DVD. It's a lot more than any Windows laptop I've looked at.

I also agree with a lot of the stuff walkerj said. I just got my Macbook about three weeks ago, and I'm completely in love with it. After the college discount and money made from selling my iPod Touch, it ended up costing me about $1100 after tax, and I got the $1300 model. Best $1100 I've ever spent. This thing is amazing. It truly does fly, and Mac OSX is unlike anything I've ever used. I have Vista installed on a PC at home and I've used it for about a year and a half prior, and OSX just blows it away. Like many say, it just works. I'm one of the few people who have actually had more or less no problems with Vista (I only say more or less because no Windows OS is problem-free), and thought it was a great operating system, that is until I got this Macbook. OSX runs on Unix, so that should say a lot about its stability, mine's been on for 17 days straight, and I know people who have had their Macs run for 30 or so days straight, and like I said before, it just works. Oh and it's also REALLY light. It weighs like 5 lbs.

Unless your morals prevent you, sell that laptop, use a college discount or find a college student and have them use their discount, and get yourself a Macbook. You won't regret it.
