I saw the early review in pc magazine about the 9200, and it said it had about 5 hours of battery life, where as Dell only shows it as 2.5. I did notice that under the customization section on dell's website, the 9200 has a $100 upgrade to the a larger capacity battery. Is this what PC magazine was refering to? As much as I love the idea of a 17inch notebook with 5 hours of battery life, I'm concerned that the battery life is gona crapout within a few months after using it. The reason for this is that my previous Dell laptop was pretty good at first, but by the 6 month mark, it was down to under an hour. Anyone else concerned about this? I just hate to blow another $100 for something that is gona perform like the smaller capacity battery in a few months.
