Wow, it sounds amazing. Having a laptop that will last through 2 or 3 movies on a plane ride is something i've been wanting for a long time :)
Can't wait til august!
Great. I for one have never really seriously considered getting a laptop precicely for the battery reasons. I want 8 hours of normal use before I'm interested in one. It'll come eventually I'm sure. Until then I will stick with desktops and their lack of mobility.
There is also a solution to prolong battery life of mobile phones,laptops by mounting a sticker like surface on the batteries and it is made of carbon nanotubes
