effect on battery life

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 75.144.8.122] on March 06, 2008 09:40 PM
Hi, I'd love to know how this affects the battery life of the laptop. For example, how fast does the battery run down when the laptop is just "sitting there" in a regular Windows install on this hard drive vs. booting up to Splashtop and letting the battery run down? And how fast if you're, for example, playing a DVD?
