I've got a Dell 4000 that I run dual batteries in and have had it about 3yrs.

The 7hr lifespan has spoiled me a bit.


It can't really keep up with the stuff I do today (on the desktop)



Which brands keep up (or run duals in-chassis) these days without lugging around extra batteries?

I've stumped Arfcom?

Most ones I've seen rely on you removing your optical drive and using a battery that fills its place.

Look into the Thinkpad, especially the X-series has a lot of extended battery options.
