The description of this product claims that it has a 3 hour battery life. The longest I have gotten out of it after a few uses is a little over an hour even with the wireless turned off and the power mode set to the most conservative settings possible. It is a great little computer when it is plugged in, but I didn't buy it so I could sit near power outlets in class. The cpu itself is rather slow and it isn't nearly anywhere close to being at a 2200+ performance level. It seems like there is something choking it to death on the inside, causing it to operate slowly and drain battery life. Spyware and virus checks come back negative. Definitely not worth the 970 dollars.
