    Ha ha ha

    I love my presario 1800T. I have never had any major problems with it and I get over 3 hours on battery power. The displays are nice too, but I think sony has everyone beat in that department.

    I've never used a notebook, so I don't know much..

    But, is that all you usually get? 3 hours of
    battery time before you have to replace them (or
    recharge them, whatever)...?

    That doesn't seem like a whole lot... I get,
    probably, 5 times that in my Gameboy Advance.

    > I get over 3 hours on battery power.

    That's all? Seems like I've seen some batteries that advertise like 60 hours...

    60 hours?? Where are you seein this? I've never seen a laptop last more than about 8 hours on a battery.

    Sorry, meant H and WH aren't teh same thing. The ads advertised like 115 WH (watt hours)... Not quite the same thing.

    I'm lucky if I get 3 I think I've ruined (at least one) of my batteries by leaving it on the charger all the time and forgetting about it...thank God for the other.

    Most people are. My friend's brand new Dell will last about 2 1/2 if he is lucky.

    PCMag had an article up claiming that Toshiba claims to have 11 hour batt lives (I didn't imagine it this time... I think)

    yeah sony's always advertising high battery power on their VAIO...the one thing that i just hate about notebooks is that finget pad thats used for a mouse...it's annoying when they wont work (and thats always for me)
