    And is the battery-life on par with Snow Leopard? I mean, that OS gave me the best battery-life.
    But it's installed now and we'll see
    According to 10.8.1 I can watch about 3 hrs of x264 720p material before it dies on a 2010 13" MBP.
    I'll post tomorrow after a fun torture day for the MBP

    Could possibly be that your battery has been over 'cycled' in its cycle count?
    Replaced mine a couple of months ago. Back to over 3hrs normal usage.

    Anyone knows anything specific about the improved SMB? Hated it that I couldn't link my 2011 MBAir by SMB with my jailbroken Apple TV2...

    Yeah, it needs replacement. My MBP says it, and so does Coconut.
