I thought my Eee PC 1000HE got plenty battery life at about 9 hours but Sony Vaio T laptop (which is only available in Japan as of now) touts as whopping 17 hours of battery life!
Of course, this would come at much higher price than let’s say you can with an ASUS UL30Vt series laptops, which get a good 6 hours on a full charge.
Sony Vaios were once at the top of netbooks before there were any netbooks. Perhaps now they will be making a comeback although I think they have to lower their prices if they want me to make me a loyal buyer.
The new Vaio Ts come with processor options including a dual core 1.2GHz Celeron SU2300, a 1.4GHz dual core Core 2 Duo SU9400, or a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo SU9600, and they boast Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, plus 4GB or 8GB of RAM, an up to 512GB SSD or 500GBhard drive. There’s also optional extras like Blu Ray, 802.11n WiFi, a fingerprint scanner, and digital TV tuner. The laptop’s life is rated at about 11 hours when equipped with the standard battery, or 17 with the large capacity.
