I thought most notebooks can only have up to 2-3 hours of battery life (or I have known for all these years). If what Toshiba claims are true, then these can be one of our dream machines (portable mobile gaming, anyone?). Obviously, the battery life would decrease pretty quick if you are opening a full movie or running a game, but with these new Toshiba machines, I’m pretty sure it’d be more than 2-3 hours still.
