Battery life is only 73 mins under heavy usage and 79 minutes of playing a DVD.

Why are so many people on this forum obsessed with battery life? Do they all live in a field or something? In my experience most laptop batteries are pretty useless after a couple of years and you need to be on mains pretty much full time anyway.

As the i7 has GMA graphics 'on the chip' you'd have thought they could switch between graphics to give better battery life under low load. The Acer 8935 I was looking at buying supported graphics switching and had very good battery life so it can be done. (The XPS16 I ended up buying has two cards but Dell don't support switching).

I'm not obsessed - but it would be nice to use a notebook / laptop away from the mains - it's a pain to be tethered and a hassle to drag the power supply from room to room.
Oh - and "yes" - I quite often use my laptop in a field. ;-)

Edit: Back to the deal: as a 'gaming laptop' the 250M graphics are maybe a bit lacking? (Class 2 and ranked alongside HD5650, 4670 according to notebookcheck).
