I just bought my first laptop and am sitting outside on a nice April day in Chicago. This is nice but I know it will be shortlived because I will only get 2and half hours out of this battery. No cd going just wondering what kind of battery life people are getting?
 
two and a half hours is about average for laptop running on battery, if you require longer you could buy a second battery, i would suggest yopu shop around as you will probaly find a cheaper compatible rather than going opting for the manufacturers.

I have a 15" G4 Powerbook at 1.67Ghz and this thing eats up batteries bad. Apple claims some outrageously high number like 4 hours or so. Mine would be lucky to get 2.5-3 just screwing around online with a couple apps open, not doing much of anything intensive.
