    I get 4 hours, 20 minutes..@ 60% screen brightness... You only get the 6 hours if your screen brightness is set to minmum and you are not using the hard drive/CD drive all the time.

    Generally, the actual battery life is much less. But, if you really want to maximize your battery, dim the screen. Don't use the cd drive, and don't access the hard drive frequently. Disable bluetooth. And, if you aren't using it (which I would be, anyway) disable Airport.
