This seems to be due they don't take tthe real battery life. MacOS X has
very many things to save power, e.g. it decreases the brightness of the
display after a very short time etc. Like this it is really possible to
come around 5h.
If you use your possibilities consequently this is also possible unter
linux: especially decreasing the monitor brightness brings very much,
like this I already achieved more than 5h.
