    For those with 12 inch Powerbook...

    Usually what's your battery life on your Powerbook? I am leaning towards getting 12 inch Powerbook but I heard that iBook has a better battery life..

    ibook max life is 6 hours
    pbook max life is 5 hours

    realistically, 2-3 hours each.

    you just admitted that you get 2-3. You start off with 4 for maybe a month. maybe.

    And you'll never even get 4 if you actually USE the notebook.. I mean something besides just looking at it.

    When I first got mine I got about 4 hours out of it using the wifi, dl'd music and doing some image stuff. Now, I get about 3 hours mabye 3.5 out of my 12" PB. Its more than enough battery for my portability lifestyle.
