According to Apple, your looking at 5 hours of battery life, that's with wireless on, browsing websites and the display at 50%. 4.5 Hours for the 17 incher.

So without wireless and the display pretty dimmed down, we're looking at 6 hours? I'll wait for the official tests.

Just makes me want to get a MacBook Pro again...each update better then the other.

For those who have been waiting -- was this really worth it?
Yes. VERY MUCH. The people who don't like this update are either made at themselves for not waiting or are one of those people that are never satisfied.

My question is what kind of difference would the L2 cache make (form 3 to 6 MB)?

where on the store does it say Penryn? I see "Core Duo"

This "Penryn" or "Coppermine" junk is just code names for sometimes-trivial improvements in Intel CPUs. As the code names are followed only by CPU enthusiasts you won't ever see them on Apple marketing materials.
