Laptop battery life

How long does your laptop typically last when running on battery power (on a full charge)?

My old laptop, an IBM thinkpad t22, got 2 hours at the most. My newer laptop, an Asus Z35FM, gets about 3 hours.

I voted under one hour.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M35X-S114.

The battery charge life has been 45 - 60 minutes since the day that I purchased it.

I have a Thinkpad x60s with a 3 month old high capacity battery. On a full charge I get about 7 hours.
