The T60 is quoted with a battery life of up to over 7 hours, depending on the battery options. I doubt you'd see that in the wild, but I doubt you'd see 6 hours in normal use on the Mac either. Once you're using the same chipset and the same processors, it becomes harder to find ways of shaving off power consumption.

True enough, but proper integration of the OS with the hardware could make a difference. Power management on Windows is still a mess, mostly due to dodgy third-party drivers.
