Windows 7: 6+ days notebook battery life...

I hope that is true and not a bug

Would mean a huge improvement in battery life. Sadly my laptop can only last about 2 min off the charger, but a new one is about $60 which isn't bad.

6 Days = 144 hrs

Yours last ~2 hrs...so...144 / 2 = 72 batteries

Just buy and charge up 72 batteries and switch them out before they die...easy as can be
Amazing suggestion.
I know...did you buy the batteries yet?
No. I'm OK with the current battery.

I could see why...72 batts * $100 (just guessing here) per batt = $7200

You can afford it Dinesh...go for it!!!

Oh for the love of...I hope you don't

I can see it now...Salesman from India was recently committed to a psych ward after he continuously attempted to buy notebook batteries from a manufacture. After the man started threatening the operator if she didn't send him another battery, the police had to intervene.
