Good Battery life full notebooks (non-culv)?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So it looks like most notebooks (15.6 inch) with any sort of graphics card seem to really get about 2-3 hours, so I'm looking for standard Intel HD with an i3-i5. The only brand that seems to advertise good battery life is the Acer Timeline (8hrs/ 6 hrs reviewed) but prices seems to have gone up recently.

So are there any other brands/models that could get about 5-6 hours standard from just web-surfing, running spreadsheets, and document creation? I'm looking to stay under $650. The problem here is I'd hate for a Sandybridge to come out in that price range in the next 2 months especially with the improved graphics and hopefully better battery life.

Also, does running wi-fi kill laptop battery in full laptops like it does in netbooks? I have an older Acer Aspire that goes from 6 hours to 2 when wi-fi is on so it makes me concerned. thanks

Are you looking for 15.6 inch?
Asus has some offerings in the 13-14 inch range that have excellent battery life.
