/me routinely gets ~ 5 hours on my work latitude d505 with the usual
batt saving reductions (speedstep throttling the cpu way the hell down,
min brightness, etc), and a good 2-3 hours on wireless if not completely
whoring the connection with lots of downloads.

I get about 2-3 hours on my latitude x300, but that's with the bog
standard battery.
