As in how long can I use it from full charge until dead.
what is normal use for you? heavy editing/gaming? or just internet/email/wordprocessing? do you run your display on full brightness? do you have wifi on? bluetooth? both?
it can be as short as 2 hours and as long as 4 maybe 5 if you really pinch it..
my white macbook usually gives me about 2.5 hours with half brightness and wifi on. this is just normal web surfing
if i watch google video or stream something over my network, it drops to 2 hours
if i'm running winxp in fusion, i can expect even less
however if i turn off wifi and just type out a paper, i can get probably 4+ hours
Mainly just stuff like surfing/ot/itunes
So I can expect around 2.5 hours w/wifi - that's pretty good.
Think I might make my purchase of a macbook today
just tune your screen brightness and you can get 3 easy
