Angry Better Battery Life with A03 - 11-21-2008, 08:59 PM

Has anyone noticed that their minis are getting better battery life after the A03 Update?
When I first used my Dell I had OS X leopard on it and the screen was dimmed all the way and Wifi was on and I was getting 1hour for 25% of battery. So thats 4 hours. Today I have been using OS X leopard for 2 hours and the battery is at 65%. Also the screen is not all the way dimmed. Its not all the way bright either, but its brighter than my first full battery run. Just wanted to see if anyone else was noticing improvements in the battery department.

1.83GHz White iMac/150GB/1.5GB/Leopard Server

500MHz PowerBook G3 40GB/1GB/Tiger
25MHz NeXT Cube 750MB/16MB/NeXTSTEP 3.3
