That’s right – 24 hours. What could you do on a laptop in 24 hours? You could listen to 432 songs, or watch 11 films, or even make money on the internet. Except you probably couldn’t do those things, because published battery life always assumes a computer just sitting there, not doing anything. Using speakers, WiFi or the DVD drive, or anything will drain that battery faster.
Pedantry aside, it’s the longest-lasting battery I’ve seen on a notebook, and you don’t get bad specs for that either. An 80GB solid-state drive, a Core 2 Duo processor, upto 4GB of RAM, and a “Dell pencil”-shaming 14.1″ Illumi-Lite LED backlit display. You can even get a mobility Radeon HD 3450 graphics card installed, if you’re that gaming-inclined.
It’s also rather rugged, just like Bauer himself. It passes Military Standard 810F tests, meaning that vibration, dust, humidity, altitude, and extreme temperatures. It’s got a spill-resistant keyboard too.The weight depends on all the stuff you put in it, but will be at least 2.1kg, and it’ll set you back a minimum of £1,420.
