    How long does your battery last?

    Just got this laptop, seems that I'm getting about an hour or so with just using the internet via wireless... Doesn't seem like a lot?

    A lot will depend on the processor. My girlfriend has an HP with a P4 2.8 in it, and when on wireless she gets about an hour and a half, while my dad has one with a Pentium mobile and when on wireless he gets around 5 hours. They're both getting what they are supposed to, timewise.
