  1. Hi my research from a while back found the ASUS UL80Vt-A1


    claims 11.5hrs battery life and the rest of the spc looks good, but is 2.5 years old

    anyone know of anything more updated?
  2. Lenovo X220: Costs: Starting price 979$
    Lasts 7.15 hours on small battery, 14.5 hours running a Video on large battery, probably the best battery life i've seen
  3. Thanks for the reply Irontheater,

    that one looks great but in the uk i can only find it for double the price!
