    all my batteries have lasted well over 2 years at several hundred cycles a piece. the batteries are good for what they do. these arent cell phones, i dont know what people expect. i get 3.5-4 hours out of mine. most of my pc notebook buddies get 2 max. :sad2:

    Their batteries sucks. My first macbook battery died 3 months later, had it replaced, and is repeating 5 months later. The battery on my macbook pro also isnt doing so well.

    While on this subject, are you suppose to let the battery die? Or keep macbook plugged in while youre using the laptop? I rarely let the battery die...its almost always at 100%

    that's really strange for the number of cycles and age. When was the last time you calibrated your battery?

    the biggest drain on the batteries is the screen brightness. if you turn it down a few notches, you can gain 30+ minutes in a matter of seconds. just saying
