    My company recently bought two Lenovo X61's to resell to a customer, and since I've had a chance to play with them I can safely say that the battery life sucks ass, even with power management turned on. So either buy the extended battery, or expect to have to plug the thing in on a frequent basis. (Either that or I've somehow managed to receive four defective batteries all at once.)

    Just thought I'd give y'all a heads-up.

    My X60 would average about an hour and a half. The sad thing is that it is touted by Lenovo as a ultra-portable solution.*

    Yeah, everywhere except in the woods on military bases where these things are going to be collecting GPS coordinates for the rest of their lives.

    Knew I should have insisted on the Fujitsus.
