    Rock launches Pegasus T12 with 7 hours battery life

    With Core 2 comes reduced power consumption and with that comes longer battery life. So much so that Rockdirect's latest laptop can keep at it for over 7 hours.

    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Hopefully other manufacturs will start to think about better battery life too, though hopefully not at the expense of explosive batteries. Personally I would be happy to lug around another 100g and a few mm if I could have better battery life.

    Would be interesting to see how far it could go with the 2-Power Xcell 70 that was reviewed last week.

    Hmm Id debate that figure since it depends on such a relatively old benchmark (already superseded by MM 2005), which would use old version of programs in its suite and is very office heavy, whereas its usually creativity/media software that are the real battery drainers...

    Then again MobileMark itself isnt really up-to-date (still uses Office XP) so its hard to guage the results either way. Ill wait until we have other comparisions using such benchmarks or real life tests before Im impressed...

    Cheapo £300 Dell Inspiron Celeron quotes over 5 hours battery life. Gets 3 1/2 if you are lucky.

    7 hours should be easy with screen brightness set at 'Matt Black'

    Actually that states 10000mah battery.
    5 1/2 or so hours with Inspiron was with 7200 mah battery
