On Friday I did something new: I ordered a new battery for my laptop (it arrived today). I’ve never had a primary laptop long enough to get really bothered by reduced battery life. It’s been more than 1.5 years since I got my Toshiba M200 Tablet PC and I still love it. In that time the battery life has gone from 3.5 to 4.5 hours to about 1 hour or so. I’m flying to LA next week and that trip is just too long to only have an hour of battery life.
