Usually laptops don’t have a long battery life, 4 or 5 hours is just about the maximum. However, NEC has recently upgraded their line of laptops, and now the VersaPro UltraLite Type VC VY10A C-4 features an incredible 14.5 hours of battery life.
The battery in this laptop powers a 1.06GHz Core 2 Duo processor that is coupled with an ultra low battery mode to generate that 14.5 hours of juice. Additionally, it weighs just 2.1 pounds, is just an inch thick, sports a 12-inch screen, 1GB RAM, 40GB hard drive, and can run Vista or XP Pro.
Unfortunately, there is no word on pricing or availability at this time, but hopefully, it will be coming out soon for a reasonable price.
