Battery drains . . .

I calibrated my battery as soon as i got my MBP (17") about three weeks ago. I've pretty much used it from the mains since then. I recently set up wireless though and was using it in the living room without the power cable and the battery went down really quickly - about 1% per minute.
Admittedly, I had wireless on, loads of apps running and it is the 17" version but is this normal? Should it run down so quickly or have I got a duff battery?
EDIT: I posted this in the wrong forum - admins can you please move it?

If your screen was set to max brightness that sounds pretty typical..
was your keyboard backlight on? that will also drain the battery really quick.
