Considering the usual lie is 5-6 and you get 1.5-2 I guess this lie would translate into 6-8 hours.

I think they must measure battery life with everything turned off that they can turn off and still have the system run, and on the lowest power using processor and memory amount.

24hours under normal operating configuration and I'll be impressed, and that includes wifi.

Though, a 12cell battery cant really afford itself too well to portability
