New PowerBook 12" battery life.

Message #1 - Posted 2003/10/22 - JeffS87

Hi,

I have an iBook and I can get about 4 hours out of the battery. How's the battery life on the new 12" PowerBook?

thanks
Jeff

I get roughly 3 hours out of my 12" PB -- moderate but constant use (no Photosho, iMovie etc.), AirPort card on, external mouse (don't know how much power it draws, though)

That is sufficient for me. I am less impressed with charge time during use -- I haven't checked, but it seems like the menu bar tool grossly underestimates the time it will take to fill it with juice.
