um, right...

I'm not really sure what you're asking, but anyway.

It depends on what setup you go for. If you get a heavy duty Sager running off a 3.6GHz P4 and an ATI M10, then the battery won't even last you the better part of an hour. But if you get a thin & light Centrino notebook with extended battery, you can get about 7hrs or more out of the notebook.

It is a very broad question, perhaps you should narrow your criteria to a more specific range.

actually the m10 is better for battery life than the m9 but anyways I think he's talking about will the battery last, many older notebook batteries used to fail and cease to hold a charge but now we are using better technology, nickle cad is what they used to all be made of but now we have a improved version of lithium battery that lasts almost forever. If you want a notebook go for it

I didn't realize that they sold a P4 3.6GHz notebook with a M9. All the current Lithium Ion batteries have about 300-400 discharge cycles, which typically last just over a year. Newer batteries obviously improve on this, but are all but non existant in todays notebooks.
