Notebook with best battery life

My husband just purchased a Sony Vaio fs660 and reviews have said the battery life is awful. Is there a notebook out there with a true battery life of 4-5 hours? I need this laptop to store lots of photos and video.
Thanks,

Dream on. Whoever says they get 7 hours are liars unless they get a extended battery or multiple batteries. there are some with 4-5 hours, but no more. A lot of centrinos would give you that. I would go for the 1.6GHz.

Where are you getting your information about poor battery life. Also since you now own the laptop why not charge it up and play around with it till the battery looses its charge?

Not the way to pick a laptop.

The battery life is always reduced to under 4 hours if engineering delivers a 4 to 6 hour design. Here's why. With a smaller battery the price drops and they'll sell more laptops.

-> Look for options for a bigger battery.
