I can charge through mine in about 1.50mins on heavy usage, like watching a DVD, high CPU tasks like running SQL server and coding at the same time. THis s prettye xtreme though. Haven't tried gaming yet. I image that would be worse once the GPU does it's bit of work as well.
On normal use get 2.5 hrs, and have managed a good 3+hrs a few times now, when not doing anything to intensive, like having MP3's going with the screen closed etc, or downloading a large file of the net, and nothing else. Seems to just idle along nicely when doing this.
The battery life could be better IMHO.
