    Up to 8 hours of battery life (6-cell battery)
    *Skepticism piqued.* *First review states the obvious hard truths about the actual battery life.* *Skepticism sated.*

    That said, I wouldn't expect to use that for any length of time without an outlet nearby. Depending on where you're going and how new the buildings are for the classes you will be/are taking, it may or may not be a problem. Newer buildings (and hence, their classrooms) tend to take laptop usage into account while the older ones...well, not so much.

    One suggestion I do make, however, is that you go to a Best Buy, Fry's, or other such store with laptops on display and at least look at or get a feel for the brand (or better yet, the exact model if you can find it), regardless of how you actually go about purchasing it. A laptop with a keyboard that you don't like the feel or style of isn't something you necessarily want to deal with.

        I think, if possible, you should take a look at some models with the newer sandy bridge processors. They're definitely faster and they should also give you longer battery life.

          That's actually quite a nice midrange multimedia laptop. As with all the other Timelines', the Timeline X line is Acer's flagship multimedia laptop. As far as battery life goes, I wouldn't count on it being able to boost more than 5.5 hours in any mobile gaming jams. The 8 hour claim is usually under Power Saver mode and basically typing out word documents.
