If you feel like the battery on your Mac is not lasting as long as it is supposed to, take it back as soon as you can. Waiting will not help anything. Take it to the Genius Bar, and as long as it is still under warranty, they will be happy to replace it for you.

The 7 hours is an estimate based on certain ideal conditions. Run time will vary based on how you use your machine, plain and simple.

Ever head the term "your mileage may vary" said of cars? The same applies to batteries - they are not an exact science.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

The 7 hours is under optimal settings. So let's say..your screen brightness is all the way up, or your playing music when you check the battery, you are going to show less remaining battery. I would very seldom expect to achieve 7 hours. With my wifi turned on and my brightness up I usually get 4-5, but always a good 4 hours.
