    Battery life... you mean as reallly battery "life" or as in how long does the computer run from the battery while using it?

    I bought my MB on May and iStat Pro says my battery health is 91%, my MB runs from the battery everyday and i charge it everyday. So i guess it's really good.

    Now... if you want to know how long does it run from the battery... well, depends on what you're using, i.e. if you're watching a movie the battery won't last long and you'll have to plug your MB, but for documents, web surfing and chatting you can use it around 2 and a half hours

    I get 3.5-4 hours doing light work with wireless on, bluetooth off, and brightness down.

    The less you do on your computer when it's on battery, the longer life you'll get.

    At school, I put it on better battery life.
    I turn the luminosity way down
    I turn the sound off
    Bluetooth off
    I only open a few programs (preview + word for example)

    The battery last from 8h30 to 13h30
    If I turn the airport off, I can manage to get close to 14h (5h30).

    No jokes.
