Battery life is pretty good nowadays - about 3 hrs without needing to fill her up. As for powering a printer - that will use it up a lot. But you can work a laptop while it is connected to the wall - so there are no real problems with that , after all I doubt you are going to take a printer with you to the bush. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN – Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ _____ From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of trapper Sent: Monday, 24 February, 2003 07:00 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx HI Bill..I am in search of the same information...Will be going Laptop this summer.
