Battery life for laptops doesn't increase when you use SSD instead of reg. HDD. The reason is that even though it draws less power, it is always drawing power. The HDD draws the most power only when it is spinning so It evens out.

The SSD Power Consumption Hoax : Flash SSDs Don?t Improve Your Notebook Battery Runtime ? they Reduce It

I was suprised too.

So, do you think this will get notebook mfrs to start increasing battery life? I know there is the whole weight vs batt life issue, but some notebooks just get ridiculously low runtime (mine is <2 hrs... )

Ooo... got me there. If I could only remember how much my Dad paid for a TUBE of memory back in the early '80s I could win this battle!

Well, they have laptops with great battery life. However, usually these energy efficient CPU's cost more money and the larger # of cell batteries also cost more money. And when people aren't willing to spend the extra for these niceties, they have computers with shorter battery life. I have a Dell E6400 with a 9 cell battery and I get a good 4-6 hours with mine.

Yikes. I've been saving up my extra scraps for only a 120 GB SSD. And even that's taking too long I could just go with a 1 TB HDD, prices are not competitive yet - so i'm guessing just tech enthusiasts that're very well off to afford this ridiculous speed/size/price(definately price)

The problem with using SSDs on notebooks is, most notebooks don't have a fast enough channel for them, so you don't really get any of the benefits.
