still laptop wise though from what my one friend says he gets 2-3 hours less battery power on nix with his laptop over windows an only reason he doesn't run nix all the time is gaming and wireless/batt power. he gets 8 hours of battery using XP though (he has a 9 cell Li-Ion batt).
oh an as a note you dun want to accuse me of supporting M$ cause I ***** hate them
(no OS and can't stand the haters stuff either plz I don't like them for 2 reasons I'm not gonna mention). lol
