Is anyone having issues with the new Macbook Pro battery life, I picked up one of the new Macbooks and it seems like the battery life is not as great as Apple advertised it to be, I am averaging about 4 hours per charge. The battery charges pretty quickly but it sucks i have to charge so often

You have to remember the battery life that Apple advertises is when it's used under ideal power saving conditions. If you're getting 4 hours, that's about the average. Some folks are getting more, others, less.

Up to to seven hours based on display lights down low, bluetooth off, no peripherals plugged in, etc.
Pretty much just light web browsing, and maybe a little itunes on low volume and you should get close to that.
