Choice 1: http://www.frys.com/product/6716595?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN...
AMD Dual-Core A4-3300M Accelerated Processor, up to 2.5 GHz
AMD Radeon™ HD 6480(M?)
claimed 5 hr 15 min battery life on the fry's page

Choice 2: http://www.frys.com/product/6645374?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN...
2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i3-2310M Processor (2.1GHz max)
Intel® HD Graphics 3000 with 128MB of dedicated system memory
claimed 4.5 hr battery life on the fry's page

So I'm looking for a portable 15.6" notebook. I've got a killer desktop to run the heavy stuff when needed, but I need a laptop for portability. Battery life is a huge issue for me, but I'd be willing to sacrifice a bit if it means slightly smoother frames when playing sc2 on the go.

Any suggestions?

oh, just wanted to comment that I don't quite trust manufacturers to rate their own products' battery lives.

Neither choice is a good option for playing SC2.
(1) has a better graphics card but the CPU is weak and SC2 needs a strong CPU.
(2) has a better CPU but the graphics card is weak.
They will both play SC2 on low levels. Expect maybe an hour or 90 minutes of game play.

If they are the only 2 choices you have - take the Toshiba L755D
