thank you for posting that link (even though it was a long time ago). 8 hours of battery life is awesome! i think my mind is pretty much made up on a refurb e1405 for college next year on a sidenote: awww patrick norton. i've been watching the screensavers (from techtv) on youtube lately and its good to know hes still doing tech stuff =) him, kevin rose, leo laporte, sarah lane, dan huard, and yoshi were all awesome on that show...
