1. It runs Windows so it's not that dependable. I know this sounds rash, but you didn't tell if you wanted to disregard such. The SPYWARE and exploit issues continue to make this so.
2. The battery time will vary from about 2 to 6 hours on time. 2 hours is about what I get in this class notebook running a game like Doom 3. It doesn't seem to change much across make/model except for P4 desktop replacement units that get about 1 hour. For DVD play, it seems to average 4 hours. And when you do something like web surfing you get 4 and up.
Not much changes these numbers.
3. The battery fails sometime after 18 months or 500 charges. This applies to all the current models with LiON and NiMH batteries. Some don't want to know this tidbit.
Hope it helps,
