7 hours on STANDBY. I have a 6 cell on a NEW laptop (3 weeks old) and it lasts about 2 hours with surfing the net 2 or 3 tabs at a time.
My old gateway , I got an hour out of it.
Battery life depends on what you're doing and what is running in the background. Mine says like 4 hours on battery. I'd NEVER get 4 hours out of it using it constantly.
Just remember: all battery life specs are ON STANDBY/Sleep/hibernation.
My body is a cage. My mind holds the key. (Except I lost the key...)
