enjoyed that review. I have read other reviews citing an average of 3 hours, but without any 'benchmarks' like this one.

I liked Anandtech's review... seemed realistic. Basically the battery life is never going to be 5 hours, unless you spend the entire time reading one page of a website on 25% screen brightness... but it's also nowhere near as bad as some people were claiming week or so ago.

3 - 4 hours, with light use. <3 hours watching a movie, but enough to see a whole film easily.
