    Specs:
    15" Macbook Pro 2GHz Intel Core i7 4GB Ram
    New Macbook Pro Battery
    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.

    Specs:
    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    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.
