    Okay so I'm facing a long ass flight to Asia. I wanted to catch up on photoshop stuff and maybe watch a movie or two.

    I have the 13" macbook and I know it's not going to last that long. Planes don't usually let passengers hook up their computers to the outlets.

    Aside from an extra battery, know of any 3rd party batteries that would work with the macbook? :x: (I know Energizer has one for portable DVD players but I doubt it will be compatible with the notebook).

    don't they make a battery, i think rayovac does, that has an outlet built into it...you could plug the charger into that.

    kinda defeats the purpose though, i doubt it will work well

    This is the case when flying around Asia, but not really with the US - Asia flights :(

    At least in my experience.

    But Business Class FTW :coolugh:
