Use Your Laptop for 8 Hours on Battery

Intel is asking laptop manufacturers to provide smaller, lighter notebooks that can run on batteries for 8 hours at a time by 2008. The article at CNET says that the current standard for notebook battery life is 4 hours — I can’t remember the last time I actually got 4 hours; maybe 3 hours.

There is more detailed information in the article, if you’re interested. Not only are the batteries being analyzed to provide more power, but each part of the laptop is using less.
