Apple claims 8 hours on the NVIDIA 9400M integrated chip, under the following conditions: "The wireless productivity test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing various websites and editing text in a word processing document with display brightness set to 50%."

From personal experience, Apple's claims tend to be bang on. Granted, I'm currently on my first and only Mac that that I've had for six months, but Apple claims those conditions for my white MacBook to be 4.5hours, and that is exactly what I got. So it may not push the computer very hard, but it is still a fair, realistic "push". 8hrs is still impressive, hard-pushing or not.
