Question: Samsung batn150plus battery life

Most user reviews place this netbook's battery life at minimum 5 hours at maximum capacity, and at leat 7 or 8 hours at minimum capacity. Can anyone tell me then why my battery only goes up to 5 hours at minimum capacity (screen brightness low, bluetooth off, even deep functions in Windows turned off, e.g. indexing, etc). Obviously, something's wrong here. Is my battery screwed and should I buy a new one?

Note: I can imagine that the Malaysian temperatures strain the fan a little, but this should skew the results that much...
