I usually get 4:30 - 5 hours, its not too hard actually, I guess i got good batteries or something, but i only run the airport card when needed, keep the speakers off, kill off everything i dont use, and most importantly, dim the screen to about 3 bars. It works great for privacy as well as keeping battery usage down.
