Testing the Lenovo X61 Battery

Monday, June 18th, 2007
I brought two fully changed 8-cell batteries with we to the conference. My goal is to make it though the day on battery power alone. I've set the laptop for Low-power, mid-brightness and Wifi, enabled. The power bar reports 4.5 hours available. we'll see how I do.

My battery life-remaining was going down fasts I dropped the brightness and disabled wireless except to replicate. I'm now at 3 hours CF Min. run tire with 33% remaining.

On a separate note, vista's TIP is much easier to use with Lotus Notes. Cool!
