Re: Battery Life

If you watch movies from a DVD that will seriously shorten battery life because the disk drive obviously has a motor that needs electricity. Streaming video with wifi also demands a lot of juice. I would say 2 hours would be on the short end of average and 3 hours would be very good under those conditions but it would not surprise me to hear you say you get 90 minutes. The single best thing you can do to stretch it is turn down screen brightness as low as you can stand.
