Vista Beta and Battery Life


Url: http://news.com.com/Vista+beta+sucks+up+battery...

In this news.com article, they explore a problem I wondered about when I first saw Avalon two years ago.  I am hoping that MS will make this better during optimization. I had heard that the Avalon team was hoping that battery life and mobile GPU's wouild be better when Avalon shipped.  Not surprisingly, the battery life of laptops is essentially the same as it was two years ago (IMHO), though Mobile GPU's may be better.

What do you think?
