Fantastic machine. But, I'm slightly disappointed with the battery life.
I haven't done any structured testing of the battery life, but I seem to be getting between 3 and 4.5 hours out of it, depending on what I'm doing (although I haven't let it run completely flat apart from when I calibrated it). This is generally just word processing and web surfing/emails. When I'm on the road, I'm less likely to be using Photoshop or watching videos, so I hate to think what would happen if I really did some production work on it.
I never expected to get anywhere near the claimed maximum 7 hours, but I did expect something a bit better than this.
Is it just me, or is this similar to your real world experiences?
Also, using anything that is processor intensive, such as Flash, or Photoshop will eat up battery life.
