I haven't used it, but my friend just got a Thinkpad x200 that gets 10-ish hours of life with Vista. I don't know if he has actually measured it with a stopwatch (maybe windows power management is lying), but I do know he leaves the adapter at home for the day. It's also freakishly light. Incidentally, when I bought my T42 four years ago, I used to get 7 hours of life easy.

An Ada exception is when a routine gets in trouble and says 'Beam me up, Scotty'.
