Looking to get a new notebook computer.

My number #1 concern is how many hours I can get from a battery.

Of course I'll need decent loading time for web pages and I'll need to be able to run basic programs.

Any suggestions?

My thinkpad T41p got about 8 hours with the screen at half bright, no wireless, and the extended battery on it.

I do a lot of airplane flying, so battery is #1 for me too. Plus thinkpads are built like tanks.

My X41 tablet gets about 6.5 hours.
