Default How long does the 6 cell battery last? - 09-06-2010, 04:04 PM


I'm thinking of getting an Inspiron 11z. The shop says the batter (6 cell) will last 5-6 hours. However reviews such as this one say nearly 7 hours is possible with light use:

So I'm wondering what is the normal battery life with light web and word processing use?

It's the Celeron 743 model I am looking at.

Thanks :-)

I have the dual-core Pentium chip and I get about 7 hours of light use with the 6-cell battery. I have the screen set to dim after one minute and turn off after 2. It sleeps after 10 minutes. I use it to surf and check email throughout the course of the day.
