i supidly bought a 17inch screen laptop last year for uni and i barely get 2 hours out of the battery. the 15.4inch guarntees 4 hours
i have it set to the powersaver setting, the screen is set to the lowest brightness. only have programs i need loaded.
i have messed about with limiting my processer to 30% and things like that but it doesnt seem to make any difference to speed or battery life.
are there any other things i can do to maximise my battery life without buying a bigger battery?
i will probably need 3 hours out of it for uni this year, as i have more classes through the day that require a laptop. i do bring along my lead etc. but it gets annoying having to plug it in etc and sometimes that involves moving seats and my groups get pissed at me.
