    "Mains powered" means it gets powered by a USB cable and not an AC adapter?

    Negative.....
    "Mains Powered" means it draws it's energy from the ring mains of a building.
    "USB Power" means it draws it's energy from the device it is attached to.

    That's because they're not up on the site yet... someone should get them up on Monday when the adapters show up....... the what you're looking at specifically says it for notebooks from 50-65w... the R2 is much less.. it'll be up under the R2 page on Monday.

    Also.. the dvd drive is not powered through the R2...... it requires an ac adapter. One Asus notebook actually can power it... that was the S5 series... it had a cable that was half usb and half power out... and with it the notebook actually powered the drive. It just draws more power than the usb cable can provide.

    I understand from justin's post that the R1F modular batteries are coming soon. So for people from toronto, I called milestonepc and they said they are gonna soon get the 6 cell battery. They also said that there is a 9 cell modular battery too. this is surprising (as i wasn't aware of it) and also exciting!! 9 cell woo!!

    anyways so this was the thing and they'll call me about the price tomorrow and i'll post it.

    There is not a 9 cell battery for the modular bay.... there's not a 9 cell battery at all. For the R1, this is what you have:

    1: the main battery, which is a 6 cell at 5200mAh

    2: the modual bay battery, which is a 6 cell at 3800mAh

    Physically more cells can't fit in either location because they're space is restricted. If the main battery on the R1 attached to the rear of the system like the W7, an optional 9 cell would be possible (although it could be ackward when using the system in tablet mode)..... but never the less, there is no 9 cell.

    I thought you were talking to me at first Justin... and then I realised you were in fact referring to deepak's post.

    Whilst I'm here, I agree... there's no such thing as a 9 cell battery.

    Thanks Justin... Funnily enough the avatar cropped up in conversation only yesterday.

    It's 'symbolic' ~ He who dares, wins ;)
