A lot can depend on how you used it. If you frequently let the battery drain below 40%, that can seriously reduce the battery life. I am still seeing 2.5-3 hours with my 4-cell battery. With Windows 7, set the power profile to "Battery Saver" and that will help. Turn off Bluetooth if you are not using it and set the screen brightness on battery to a lower level.
Don't try putting the battery in the fridge.
