BO, I still have my 52" Panasonic rear projection LCD tv. Thing is solid. Been going for 4 years now with hours and hours on the bulb. I'd definitely buy a Panasonic again. My tv shows in 1080i still look nice!

If you have Audio Surf already, the Netbook mode is just an option in the graphics menu. So you don't need to re-buy it.

Forgot I had these sitting in my favorites

A few key notes:
1 stick of RAM will always run at 1 Amp @ 3.3v meaning it's actual power usage is 3.3watts.

CD/DVD/BR drives are (on average, some are a little more, some a little less) 25watts

And a HDD is 12watts.

Now, I would like to note that 7200RPM vs 5400RPM is pretty nil, as it's only a possibly 2 watt increase in power usage. But realistically, less that that.

A bigger concern is areal density. IE: how dense your HDD is. That means the Read/Write head has to move less if your drive is very dense.
Even if you are only going to use 30GB of your HDD, if you have a 500GB 7200RPM drive, and you partition out the first 60GB of your drive as it's C:\\ sector, the read write head of your drive will hardly ever move. because it will be confined to such a small space. This can actually improve performance. Even on desktops with a singular disk.

Most guides and such are going to tell you the same stuff though.

A big point of these as well, is charge on the UPS, but remove when they are done charging. As most people know, when a battery is on charging, it's constantly being over-volted so that it does charge. Well, the longer you leave it on the charger after the charge is complete, the longer it stays in that condition.

Another thing,
Hibernate power usage ~3watts with an increased startup time (in seconds)
Sleep power usage ~6watts with almost instant startup time.

I would always recommend using Hibernate though, as Windows (XP more so than Vista or 7) hates sleep mode, and has trouble coming out of it.

I do all but Tip 7 (keeping the contacts clean). When I really need to scrimp, I turn off the style (setting it to Windows Classic and disabling ALL video effects) and drop it to 640x480. I was able to get just about 3.5 hours on the same system that usually runs for about 100 minutes. I JUST hit save on my notes from class when the battery died.

no way you can go from 100 minutes to 3.5 hours Changing only appearances and animations/video crap
