3 days ago I purchased the highest end Macbook Pro 15". The computer is amazing, fast, and light. However, one of the main reasons I upgraded from my 3 year old Macbook Pro was due to the claim of up to 8 hours of life (using wireless web or itunes). I am getting a little over half that with just email (Apple Mail program) and Safari open.
I've had my computer diagnosed at the Apple store and it checked out. I've had a couple of calls with their level 2 tech support and they went over activity monitor items with me and tried a bunch of things, but the battery is still only doing about half of what Apple claims. How is this possible?

Is anyone else having this issue with the newest model Macbook Pro's?
What do you suggest?
