I have a 3 year old Fujitsu P2000 (2120) and am thinking about an upgrade. The batteries don't last as long as they used to. Between my high-capacity main and the secondary, I only get 5-7 hours of typing and the old Transmetta processor isn't exactly exciting.
Are there any recommendations for a new notebook with amazingly long run-time on batteries? I could just opt for the P7000 series but the keyboard and display are a bit small even though I like a lot of the other features.
I left a note on the forum of CNET asking the same thing but the only suggestion so far was to buy an iPaq and Qosmio and to forget about grammar and spelling.
The problem with your batteries is they're just old. You've taken good care of them though - most times they dont' last 3 years with > 50% life remaining. If you can get new ones you're runtime will rebound.
Don't know much about long runtime laptops - Sorry.
