    I was told about 4-5hours min, but I just finished conditioning my battery, drained it even 3x now and only getting 3hours. I have everything set to low except the cpu speed and monitor brightness is always set at high. But i have power savings like standby within 2-3mins and fans not going off often to conserve battery.

    Centrino is just the chipset used in the machine, there are a ton of factors that go into the longevity of a laptop battery's charge. I think the estimates of battery life for most machines are generated by the marketing department, not the engineering department. :)
