    Hi people !

    I only want to ask how many time does the powerbook 12" battery holds on :p
    If possible: 1- Using wifi , 2 - Not using it

    I finally did my decision, ill bought one the next week :D

    Thanks for all

    I've got a 12", 1,33Mhz that's about a year old. I use it in university, and with dimmed screen it still gives me about 5 hours of text-editing. (Thats without Wi-Fi though)

    I have an old 1GHz 12". Old battery lasted 45 mins max. New battery lasts 3hrs45 approx with wifi on. Hope this helps and you enjoy the new machine
