    Anandtech did a test of the new unibody MBPs with built in battery.
    Their verdict? On its light test it lasted eight, freakin' hours.

    Apple's 2009 Macbook Pro Battery: Battery Life To Die For.

    In addition, heavy use showed that it can really last 5 hours.
    Saw this at Macrumors.

    Jeez! Really makes my 3 hour Macbook look old!!!

    Impressive! All that's missing is Snow Leopard and I'm off to get a new MBP!

    5-8 hours! Now that's really mobile computing. :)

    I wonder how long it'll take to fully charge the new batteries...
