hi guys,

i have just recently bought an mba 13 inch i5 2-3 weeks ago. i have noticed that my battery drainage is bloody horrendous.

in just under 1.5 hours of just web surfing ( no multiple tabs, no gaming.) my battery dropped from 100% to 82%. brightness was at 2 dots, bluetooth, mail, etc were not running and the battery have had 4 cycles.

as a new mac user, i am absolutely frustrated by this and wish to find a solution.


thanks in advance for any comments.
QUOTE Thanks
