    Can anyone who recieved their post their battery life experience please?

    I am coming from a XPS M1330 w/9 cell which used to last 5 hours. I got the 8 cell with the HP. Hopefully it will last a decent 4 to 4.5 hours

    Anyone? Thanks in advance

    To get it to run at those times, you're going to have to undervolt the processor, and run the screen brightness at low levels, and have the wifi off.

    If you don't mind getting 2-8 cell batteries, then you'll get the time, w/o having to turn the settings low.

    Just for some figures, I get about 1.5 hours on high performance just web browsing and between about 3.5 hours on power saver with wifi on. I have the 6-cell on the tx2500.

    That is actually pretty good. Typically battery life if fairly linear. So with an 8 cell we should be around 2 hours on high performance and around 4.5 hours on power saver.

    This is good news. Based on some early indications, it was looking like the battery life would be about the same as the 2000, which was a pretty big problem. It's nothing to brag about, but 3-3.5 hrs on PS is acceptable for me.

    I got the base 6-cell plus an extra 6-cell. I figured it would give me much better life than a single 8-cell, even though it's more expensive. Plus, no ugly hump to worry about. Just an extra battery to carry around in my backpack if I think I'm going to need it for back-to-back classes.
