yeah, i wish for 65KWh the battery should last over 6 hours instead it lasts and reads as 44Kwh which is about the 4.5 hours you are getting before you should recharge.\
i've also noticed that the first 50% lasts like 2.5-3 hours and then it drops off fast for the second 50%
I have 2 700m's, 1st one (from $750 coupon deal) has 8-cell, no cd-rw)
2nd one (Refurbished, CHEAP as 1st one, 4-cell, cd-rw though) <- can't really configure refurbished laptops, hence why
Still, < 5 hrs for 8-cell is bad @@ Consider that laptop is so small too
I got a optical-bay battery for my M6, primary + 2nd battery should last me 10 hours, WOW... gonna test it of course
