    Just out of idle curiosity how can you find how long the battery of your notebook lasts under windows? I can only see a percentage, is it possible to get a time like under OS X?

    so I'm guessing it isn't possible? Oh well, just another thing OS X is better at ;).

    As far as I know, Apple has not released drivers for much of their power management hardware for XP via Bootcamp.

    Actually Xp has better battery life forecasting then osX does.
    theres a little battery symbol in the task-bar put your cusor over it and it tells you.
