I have my Fs500 for a week now.. The battery is only like less than 2 hours on "sony optimized mode". Kind of sad for Centrino platform.. My Dell 8600 is 5 hours+.. I think it is the new Sonoma chipset that drain most of the power, Since other Sony Xbrite screen will less longer, and the Dell has 9700 ATI graphic card. Or it is the sony? I don't think alter the powersaving mode will bring < 2 hours battery life closer to 5 hours.
