    I think this is one for mr.Catrancher since I dont think anyone else has one yet!

    Whats the battery life like after you'd had it a while? just on wifi, web browsing around?

    I usually get two or three days of use before I have to recharge. Usually it's down to about 45 to 50 per cent. I could probably go for another day or two if I wanted to take it down that far. I try to run things like this down to almost nothing every 6 months or so. Just to avoid any memory issues even though li-poly batteries aren't supposed to develop a memory.

    Recharging typically takes 2 or 3 hours. :yes:

    Usage has been mostly afternoon and evening probably about 2 or 3 hours per day. I've really been quite pleased with the battery life! :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... charged up!)

    One thing I forgot to mention. :oops:

    Those figures are with Wi-Fi on and Bluetooth off. Also, the Wi-Fi radio in it doesn't have to work too terribly hard since usually here in the house, I'm within about 15 to 20 feet of a WAP. :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... I still think it's pretty good!)
