    I'm getting around around 4:30 on my 8 cell with Windows 7 and 3:18 on Vista, tx2500. Can anyone explain exactly what MS did to improve 7's battery life?

    they reduced the amount of system resources needed to run effectively. Users are supposed to see a 10-20% increase in battery life over vista, or similar battery life to windows xp.
