"A good laptop should last 5 hours on a charge. A great one will give you nearly a full workday's worth of juice for surfing the web, checking e-mail and social networking updates, and getting other stuff done. That's why we made the cut-off for this elite group of portables 7 hours. All of these machines were able to surf the web continuously with the screen on 40 percent brightness (about the default level when you unplug a notebook) for at least that amount of time."
Sometimes you want raw power in a laptop, and other times you want something that will keeping going and going and going - just like that damnable bunny with the drum! Laptop Magazine has pulled together the longest lasting laptops and netbooks that they've reviewed recently, and the results are impressive. Keep in mind these are products that have been tested to last longer than seven hours, which is a big difference from simply rounding up laptops that on paper say they last seven hours. If you're looking for a laptop that lasts and lasts, this list is a good place to start.
