The Inq reports Windows Vista will be a notebook battery killer:
Speaking to Wired, Nathan Brookwood of Insight 64pointed out that the Vista's operating system's graphics power demands will suck the life out of most batteries far too fast.

Punters who try to use Vista on their laptops will find themselves having to disable the graphics functions because their battery is going to dry far too quickly to be useful, he said.

Those rare laptops which have graphics cards that can handle Vista could be doomed to spend their life plugged into the mains..
