I've just bought an Elettrodata Nev@da sx-482 (Italian brand)/Clevo M400A/Sager 4880.
It's equipperd with a 4400 MhA battery.
It runs out of energy in less than two hours (110'), browsing the Internet trough lan port, using USB keyboard and mouse, and PcMcia Enabled (allthe rest disabled, even the DVD drive).
I think it's real shit! I've bought a Centrino to have the same battery life of an AMD 64 without its power!!!
For about 100 € (about 130 US$) they could have installed a 6600MhA battery in order to give this laptop a sufficient autonomy.
I agree, it's a little thick and heavy, but it seems to be long resistant.
The screen is good for its brighteness (I hate glossy and 15,4") , but non so good for viewing angle.
I agree with other people: why a parallel port and why not a DVI output?
After all it's a good laptop. but it doesn't worth its price (at least in Italy).
Acer TM 8100 series is definetely better!
