Ya, it seems like a pretty powerful machine. With powerful laptops comes short battery life.

530 Ghz? That must be a typo. I think they mean MHz. Looks good.

That one seems like it'll have a bit better battery life. Less powerful, though. What are you gonna use it for?

just things like shcool, mp3's and dvds and a bit of gaming, but nothing to hardcore like ahem "doom 3".

in that case go with something quite a bit less powerful. Maybe something like this: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/sto...fm=0&sm=1&tm=0
