Default Battery!!

I need a laptop that has enought battery juice for over 4 hours of constant utilisation.
I am thinking about 6cell battery++ (I tried buying a 450$ laptop, then I had to buy another battery wich was 180$ with shipping then I had to change batteries every ~2hours, it was a pain. Im looking for something like 9cells wich is 4hours+)

I really dont care about the laptop's specs since all i need is to be able to run word, excell and surch. Wifi and USB ports are welcome.

My budget is around 200-400$

If anyone has an idea, plz..

My System Specs


The ASUS Eee's? From the MaxPC review, it ran some HD movie or something for about 5 hours straight.

$200-400 for a laptop? I think you would be looking for a netbook.

You can get an Acer Aspire One with a 6-cell battery for under $400.

There's also the Asus EEE PC 1000HA that runs at about $450.
